"One provision the court assessing the two state's laws did let stand, as the Supreme Court had in the Arizona case, is to allow law enforcement to check the immigration status of those suspected of a crime."

The law does not "allow law enforcement to check the immigration status of those suspected of a crime". They already have that right. It REQUIRES law enforcement to check the immigration status of those suspected of a crime if they suspect that they are an illegal alien and report them to ICE if they are. This means that no law enforcement agency in the state can institute policies like many in California and Illinois have forbidding LEOs from checking immigration status and/or reporting illegal aliens to ICE which is in violation of federal law that the DoJ refuses to enforce.

it comes down to all who going against the laws citizens have pushed have been bought of and need to be investigated to see if they have ever talking to those who support illegal aliens giving chance for the money to change hands.

whenever somone in office is behind closed doors with illegal aliens or their supporters something dirty against the American people is being done.
