The Obama Administration’s legal challenge to Arizona’s S.B. 1070 immigration-related enforcement law is misguided and runs counter to the rule of law. That’s what panelists at a recent Heritage Foundation symposium concluded.
Experts addressed the grounds on which the federal lawsuits against this state have proceeded. The think tank’s event featured a keynote address by Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever, who has been outspoken in defense of Arizona’s law. Other participants included Kris Kobach, a University of Missouri-Kansas City law professor, former Justice Department official and central figure in drafting Arizona’s S.B. 1070.
