Judge upholds Arizona's 'show your papers' immigration law | Reuters
If this ruling sticks, other states could seemingly do the same...
Ian SImpson reported on this at Reuters.com:
"The ruling by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on Friday was on the last of seven challenges to the 2010 law. The section being upheld allows police in Arizona to check the immigration status of anyone they stop.
Bolton ruled that immigration rights activists failed to show that police would enforce the law differently for Hispanics than other people. The section is sometimes called the 'show your papers' provision.
The judge also upheld a section that let police check to see if a detainee is in the United States illegally."
