Apparently STILL NO HEALTHCARE DECISION TODAY. Arizona immigration law decision is out. Acc. to Amy Howe at Scotublog, Court, per Kennedy, hold that "it was improper for the lower courts to enjoin
Section 2(B), which requires police officers to check the legal status
of anyone arrested for any crime before they can be released." Sounds reasonable. The parts of these state immigration statutes that frost my shorts are the ones that command different treatment for arrestees (or Terry-stopees, or traffic-stopee) who "look illegal" (tho' the statutes never make it that obvious). As Amy notes, those issues were not before the Court in this case.
