WASHINGTON (AP) -- The state of Arizona can't require all immigrants to carry immigration registration papers, and it can't make it a crime for an illegal immigrant to hold a job. Those are among the provisions of the state's immigration crackdown that were struck down today by the Supreme Court. But the justices didn't toss out a provision requiring police to check the immigration status of someone they suspect is in the country illegally. Still, police are prohibited from arresting people on minor immigration charges.

    Why don't we just keep all the illegals we got now being they are here already. We've had a couple wars and lost ? many people, so why not just replace them with illegals. Give them a leg up. If we was going to war with buckets of rocks, don't we need a lot of people to throw them ?
