|The Supreme Court declined to block the 'papers, please' provision of the law--which Brewer refers to as its 'heart'--that requires local authorities to check the immigration status of anyone they arrest. But the high court did not find the controversial provision constitutional, and so it was not 'upheld.' It's anyone's guess how the court might ultimately rule on the 'papers, please' provision, Justice Anthony Kennedy's opinion gives very specific guidance on how that part of the law should be enforced. That suggests that in the future, the court could very well find the provision unconstitutional--meaning that Brewer's celebration was beyond premature.|
