SB 1070: In the News and in Your Library

by Patrick Lopez 3. November 2010 10:28

 

Oral arguments were heard earlier this week by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on the stay placed upon Arizona's controversial Immigration law SB 1070. Arizona's governor, Jan Brewer, took time away from campaigning on the eve of election day to attend the court proceedings.

The parties in this case are U.S. government and the State of Arizona. The case first appeared before the Federal District Court for the State of Arizona where a partial stay was granted on some of the most controversial portions of the law. The State of Arizona appealed this stay which brought the case to the Ninth Circuit court. The U.S. government argued that SB 1070 was pre-empted by federal statutes. The State of Arizona argued that the provisions in question were consistent with congressional objectives, and not pre-empted by federal law.

  View a full video of the oral arguments here.

We also invite members of the Phoenixlaw community to stop by our latest library display focusing on SB 1070 and surrounding immigration issues.  The display features the briefs filed in this case, a full transcript of the proceedings, books and magazine articles dealing with immigration law, and immigration law treatises selected from the library’s collection.   We also included a few position statements from organizations representing differing views on the matter.  Stop by and become informed about this controversial issue that has brought national attention to Arizona. Several states appear poised to enact similar laws of their own and are closely following this case.
