The Controvery Continues

Immigration…who can live here and who can’t is one of the most controversial issues that every country faces.  It can highlights our collective fears of other groups and ideas about how our public resources should be allocated, among many other beliefs and perceived notions that influence our stance on this issue.  The Supreme Court’s ruling yesterday of Arizona’s SB 1070 highlighted this again yesterday.  In summary, the Court ruled on the illegality of SB 1070, but allows law enforcement to inquire about the immigration status of those whom they stop for traffic or other offenses.  Proponents and opponents of this measure are equally staking victory on the Court’s ruling, but both recognize that the issue is far from over.
