Vt. Joining States To Oppose Arizona Immigration Law

Print More

The state of Vermont is joining 10 other states asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn an immigration law implemented by the state of Arizona.

Vermont Attorney General Bill Sorrell and the other states claim Arizona’s immigration law requires state law enforcement officers to detain and arrest individuals who appear to be illegal immigrants.

Sorrell and the other attorneys general maintain U.S. immigration police can only be made and enforced by the federal government.

The states include New York and California, and filed a friend of the court brief that is part of a challenge to the Arizona law that will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court next month.
