The U.S. Supreme Court today struck down key parts of an Arizona law that sought to deter illegal immigration but let stand a controversial provision allowing police to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws.

Justice Anthony Kennedy delivered the opinion of the Court. He wrote in the majority opinion: “the national government has significant power to regulate immigration” and that Arizona “may not pursue policies that undermine federal law.” Thus, while not striking down the heart of the law, the Court handed a considerable victory to the federal government.

I think this is a pretty fair decision, and a comprehensive immigration reform is needed to fix the broken immigration system.
