Probably the most newsworthy: In a 5-3 decision, SCOTUS struck down/upheld Arizona's controversial SB 1070 immigration law…
Wow! So, the three provisions that make it a criminal offense to be an illegal immigrant in Arizona were overturned and the one which requires police to check the immigration status of people they stop for other reasons was upheld. These are some pretty shocking/predictable results from the increasingly partisan/fair-minded judiciary body.
This will obviously be seen as a huge win/devastating blow to President Obama, who came out vocally in opposition to this law. And during an election year, this should prove to be really helpful/harmful to his re-election chances. And of course, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer who received tons of criticism/support for championing this law will be remembered as the true loser/winner here.
I think the lesson here is pretty clear to people on both sides of this issue. I won't insult your intelligence by spelling it out explicitly.
