Tom Saenz and Lucas Guttentag, two of the country's foremost leaders in the fight for immigrants' rights, will discuss the Supreme Court's recent ruling on the constitutionality of the Arizona's immigration law, SB 1070. How does the ruling fit into the Court's jurisprudence regarding the role of state and local officials in enforcing federal immigration law? Was the Court's decision to find three of the four provisions of the law pre-empted while leaving what is perhaps the most troubling provision intact a victory or a loss for immigrants' rights? What does the Court's decision say about forthcoming as-applied challenges to the law?
