Justice Dept. Challenges Arizona Statute

Publication Date: 7/7/2010
Format: HTML

The Justice Dept. has filed a lawsuit seeking to stop Arizona’s new immigration law from taking effect, contending the state statute is unconstitutional and will “undermine” federal immigration enforcement. Arizona Senate Bill 1070, enacted on April 23, is to take effect on July 29. It directs police, while stopping an individual, to try to determine that person’s immigration status when there is “reasonable suspicion” that he or she is in the U.S. illegally. The Justice Dept.’s lawsuit, filed on July 6 in federal district court in Arizona against the state and Gov. Janice K. Brewer (R), says, “In our constitutional system, the federal government has preeminent authority to regulate immigration matters.”
