Supreme Court Upholds 'Papers, Please' Provision

WASHINGTON -- On Monday, the Supreme Court struck down three out of four provisions of the Arizona immigration law that it was reviewing, but upheld section 2(B), the specific portion that requires local law enforcement to ask people for proof of immigration status if they "reasonably suspect" an individual to be in the country illegally. The Obama administration had argued immigration matters were strictly a federal function. The ruling is likely to have widespread implications for other states that have or are considering similar laws.
