Washington DC - On April 25, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on Arizona's immigration enforcement law. The legislation was signed on April 23, 2010 by Gov. Jan Brewer (R-Ariz.), who said Arizona needed to do something to stem the flow of illegal immigrants through a policy of "attrition through enforcement." The idea is to make life so miserable for undocumented aliens that they will get up and self-deport. But critics of the law say it can also make life hard for citizens and legal immigrants, as it encourages racial profiling, and preempts the authority of the federal government to enforce national immigration laws. Others add that Arizona's immigration law and copycat legislation in other states-Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Utah-cause losses in the state economy and an unfriendly business climate.
