Immigration Article of the Day: "No Exception to the Rule: The Unconstitutionality of State Immigration Enforcement Laws" by PRATHEEPAN GULASEKARAM
"No Exception to the Rule: The Unconstitutionality of State Immigration Enforcement Laws" Advance: The Journal of ACS Issue Groups, Vol. 5, p. 37, Fall 2011 PRATHEEPAN GULASEKARAM, Santa Clara University School of Law.
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.
