WASHINGTON – The U.S. Supreme Court struck down much of Arizona’s controversial immigration law, but upheld the right of police to demand proof of citizenship. Leading LGBT and HIV groups across the U.S. reacted to the mixed ruling.
According to the Washington Post, the high court ruled that Arizona:
• Cannot make it a misdemeanor for immigrants to fail to carry identification that says whether they are in the United States legally
• Cannot make it a crime for undocumented immigrants to apply for a job
