    "The national government has significant power to regulate immigration. Arizona may have understandable frustrations with the problems caused by illegal immigration while that process continues, but the state may not pursue policies that undermined federal law." - Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing the majority opinion on the Supreme Court case challenging Arizona’s immigration law. The court struck down most of the law but upheld a provision that allows police to ask for proof of a person’s citizenship. Both sides of the issue are calling the ruling a victory.
