The U.S. Supreme Court dealt a severe blow to President Barack Obama today.

The Supreme court judges in a 5-3 vote struck down a challenge to a key provision of the controversial Arizona immigration law -- the so-called "show me your papers" provision.

By leaving the SB 1070 provision intact Arizona police can stop immigrants and ask to see their documentation. Immigrants who can't provide documentation risk deportation back to their countries. The provision also affects the ability of immigrants to seek work in Arizona.

The justices also delayed their much-anticipated ruling on Obama's universal health care mandate until Thursday. The controversial mandate will force Americans to buy expensive health insurance whether they need it or not.

President Obama courted the Hispanic vote with his controversial change in the immigration policy granting immediate amnesty to over 800,000 children of illegal immigrants.

The new immigration policy applies to illegal immigrants who are under the age of 30, who have lived in the U.S. for 5 years, are in school or graduated, are military veterans, and have never been convicted of a felony.

Obama had hoped the Hispanic votes would give him the key electoral votes he needs to easily defeat Mitt Romney in the November presidential elections.

      I hope you all are also using other news sites as your source of information also. It isn't a blow to Obama, its actually a win. They struck down all but one portion:

      In the event the police are investigating/arresting a person for the involvement with another crime, they may then check legal status.

      No the teeth of the law was the warrantless arrest and the section that brought federal immigration laws down to the state level. If a fed law was enforced on the state level they would be able to lock you up without proper interprtation of the fedaeral law.

      I see nothing wrong with the let me see your papers law. its the same as asking for ID. Also just so you know most Legal immigrants actaully carry there Lawful Permanent Resident card along with state issed ID's mainly because you can use it for anything other than driving.

      Nope (see above) you wrote the above in a sensationalized manner by ommting that the Supreme Court court struck down all of the other provisions in the law and stated that Arizona "went to far".

    • Ms. Everything

      No Sandra, under the law the police had the right to stop anyone that they felt could be illegal and demand to see their papers. That is illegal, it's discrimination, it's unfair and again highly illegal in every state but retarded ass AZ and that was the "teeth" as you say. That was the problem, no one has a problem with police checking immigration status after a stop for cause but no one deserves to be stopped and harassed just for looking non white :no:

      :mad: :cuss: :shotsfired:

      A Kansas City, Mo., mother is behind bars, accused of keeping her 10-year-old daughter locked in a closet, not letting her come out to eat, sleep or even go to the bathroom.

      The girl weighed just 32 pounds, and hospital records indicated that she has only gained 6 pounds since she was 4 or 5 years old, according to a police probable cause statement. The girl also suffers from "multiple healing skin injuries and failure to thrive," the statement said.

      "She weighed a little over a third of what a 10-year-old should weigh," Kansas City Police Capt. Steve Young said. "We don't know how long or how frequently she's been in there [the closet], but it's clear she'd spent a significant amount of time in there."

      Kansas City police met Missouri Children's Division workers outside the apartment building Friday morning after the division received a hotline call about a girl who was locked up and unable to eat or use the restroom.

      When a division worker told two women outside the apartment that three children lived in the apartment, the neighbors said they had never seen the third child even though they'd lived there for "several years."

      "We never knew of her the whole three years we've been down here," Kimberly Kelley, another neighbor, told ABC's affiliate in Kansas City, KMBC-TV. "She told us she only had two kids."

      Officers learned the mother, Jacole Prince, 29, was out with her two younger children, but maintenance let law enforcement inside, according to the probable cause statement.

      The second floor smelled strongly of urine, and when officers noticed a crib pushed against a closet door that was tied off with rope, they asked, "Is anyone in here?"

      A child's voice answered, "Yes."

      The girl was found standing in the closet, according to the statement. She told officers "the closet was her room," and she couldn't go to breakfast with her mother and sisters because she "messes herself." She also sleeps there, she said.

      At the hospital, the child told detectives she had not been let out of the closet for two days, and she does not eat every day. She said her mother gets mad and "punches her on the back" because she "keeps peeing on herself."

      She is not allowed to play outside like her sisters, and instead has to play behind the couch, the girl said.

      That night, police arrested the girl's mother and her boyfriend. The mother allegedly admitted to locking her child up in part because she knows she would get in trouble if anyone saw how malnourished the girl had become, according to the statement.

      Her boyfriend denied knowing the mother ever locked the 10-year-old in a closet.

      The girl's mother was charged with assault in the first degree, child abuse, and endangering the welfare of a child in the first degree, according to the criminal complaint. All three charges are felonies.

      As someone who lives in Arizona this ish is ridiculous. You have illegals marching in the streets and getting arrested but ice says they won't detain them or arrest them even if they have been arrested for breaking other laws. Now if I was marching for rights of some sort and I trespassed on land while yelling out "I'm carrying a concealed weapon unlicensed" they would arrest and prosecute me. The same illegals who were breaking laws and not detained used that as a way to brag and say "yea I told you they wouldn't arrest me" kinda like a laugh at the gov't.

      The probable cause thing makes sense. If a cop walks by your car and smells weed or if someone tells them you are smoking weed they can investigate and search your vehicle. So if there is a reason to suspect someone is illegal they should be able to check them. Seems to me most people who are concerned with being profiled are either illegal themselves or know some1 who is illegal. I know Im not concerned. If they want proof I can provide my state drivers license, birth certificate, Or gov't issue passport.

      @Deevac,
      "Seems to me most people who are concerned with being profiled are either illegal themselves or know some1 who is illegal. I know Im not concerned. If they want proof I can provide my state drivers license, birth certificate, Or gov’t issue passport"

      It's this simple, it's considered racial profiling. And it's not fair. Instead of cops looking for murders,drug dealers, they'll be wasting time, on a harmless person, jsut rying to survive and get a meal!

    • http://twitter.com/jetsetdeeva DeevaC

      @Peachizz

      Other immigrants that are "just trying to survive and get a meal" come here legally, so illegals should be made to face the consequences of their actions. If you illegally enter most other countries you go to jail, do hard labor, or worse. If you enter the us illegally you are given all types of assistance.

      At this point we are telling the world "yea come here illegally you have no reason to fear breaking the law by crossing our borders..." the law is the law and should be upheld and enforced.

      Sandra, be accurate in your reporting and not so biased. The SCOTUS gutted the law and left one part. That isn't a blow to the President.
