Abstract

This issue brief presents the argument that state immigration enforcement laws, like Arizona's SB 1070, are unconstitutional. The Supreme Court's recent Whiting decision, upholding Arizona's E-Verify and business licensing law, does not not alter the analysis or conclusion with regards to broader enforcement type schemes.
