SURE, THE CONSTITUTION FAVORS THE FEDS...:

Arizona immigration law unlikely to survive federal lawsuit: Legal experts cite the longstanding principle that the federal government has exclusive control over immigration. (David G. Savage, July 9, 2010, LA Times)

Arizona's law giving local police immigration enforcement powers is likely to be struck down, most legal experts predict, now that the Obama administration has gone to court asserting that it conflicts with federal law.

They cite the longstanding principle that the federal government has exclusive control over immigration and that "no state can add or take away" from the policy set in Washington.


...but if AZ won then all we'd need is one state to grant new immigrants legal status and laws like AZ's would be nullified.
