Supreme Court Finishes Arguments On Arizona Immigration Law

The Supreme Court heard arguments Wednesday morning on the Arizona law and whether key provisions pass constitutional muster. No clear majority emerged one way or another. It appeared possible that the court will strike down some aspects of the law while upholding others.

Arguing the case for the U.S. was Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, and for Arizona lawyer Paul Clement — a rematch after the two faced off weeks ago before the high court on health care arguments. Clement again outshone his opponent.
