QUICK TAKE: Supreme Court to Weigh In on Ariz. Immigration Law -- Report

The Supreme Court will take up a case involving the Arizona law that requires police to check the immigration status of someone stopped or arrested if the person is suspected of being in the country illegally, according to news reports on Monday. 

The Court will review an appeals court ruling that blocked some of the Arizona law's severe provisions. Other states, including Alabama, South Carolina, and Utah, have similar laws on their books, and immigration has been an issue in the Republican presidential campaign this year as well. 

 

Justice Elena Kagan, reports the Associated Press, will not participate in this case because of her work on the issue for the Justice Department as solicitor general for the Obama administration.
