In another step toward the Arizona's anti-immigration law's inevitable demise, the Third Circuit restated the proposition that should have been obvious: state laws attempting to regulate immigration are preempted by federal immigration laws. While the opinion is not 100 percent congruent with what the Korean wanted, it nonetheless is a gem. The court curtly characterizes one argument by the city that enacted illegal immigration ordinances as "disingenuous" -- the closest a court will ever come to calling someone a liar (at p. 130).
If you are not particularly inclined to read the 188-page opinion, Above the Law has a quick-hitting summary.
