Justice Department may drop bid to void portion of SB 1070

1070By Howard Fischer | Capitol Media Services/East Valley Tribune

The Obama administration is apparently ready to throw in the towel in its bid to kill the “papers, please” provision of Arizona’s controversial 2010 immigration law.

Legal papers filed by attorneys from both sides disclose they are in talks to resolve outstanding issues on several points of SB 1070. That would involve the state giving up its efforts to enforce provisions of the law dealing with harboring those not in the country legally.

But the Department of Justice would no longer seek to void a requirement that a police officer check the immigration status of those they have stopped if there is “reasonable suspicion” the person is in the country illegally.
