The Supreme Court tossed out much of Arizona’s immigration law, but left in place a key provision giving law enforcement personnel the right to check status on arrests and detentions. Naturally, Homeland Security has decided that, when the calls begin coming in from Arizona, the phones will pretty much be out of order.

National disgrace

Main excuse for striking down the rest: States do not have the right to have their own immigration laws.

Where was that notion when California set up State Police at its borders, and refused entry to "Okies" fleeing the Dust Bowl in the Thirties?

Corollary: The federal government isn't obligated to enforce its own laws. Quite a Catch-22!
