Indiana’s Immigration Law

Indiana's law has been called a "copycat" of Arizona's controversial anti-immigration legislation.

The Supreme Court heard arguments this week on whether Arizona's state immigration law oversteps federal policy.

This week’s Supreme Court hearing on Arizona’s immigration law will center on what states can and can’t do when it comes to making immigration policy. Indiana’s own immigration law has come under scrutiny in a lawsuit, and the Arizona case could have an impact on lawsuits and state laws to come.

How will the Supreme Court’s response to Arizona’s legislation affect state-level immigration laws around the country? Join us Friday at 12 p.m. with your questions.
