The Supreme Court ruled June 25 that Arizona’s local law enforcement can be required to ask about someone's legal status if they have reason to believe they are in the country illegally in its released opinion on SB 1070. But the court also argued that police can't engage in racial profiling. Both opponents and supporters of Arizona's immigration law held up the long-awaited ruling as a victory. But the decision didn't settle the ongoing debate about how the United States should deal with its illegal immigrant population. Protesters spent much of June 25 vowing to continue their fight against the law. Watch Indian Country Today Media Network’s video from the site of the protest.
