The U.S. Supreme Court overturned many of the provisions in a controversial 2010 Arizona immigration law, including a provision that made it illegal for an undocumented worker to apply for or hold a job in the state. The court said the federal government has exclusive authority to make and enforce immigration laws.
The impact, according to the Foley Lardner law firm, could be a chilling effect on state immigration laws: “For employers, the good news is that states are now unlikely to continue to pass a patchwork of different kind of immigration laws that would require employers with employees in various states to tailor compliance efforts on a state-by-state basis.”
