The US Supreme Court: Immigration and Politics
Listen to/Watch entire show:
The US Supreme Court gave the Obama Administration a victory today by ruling that most of Arizona's tough immigration law violates the Constitution. We hear about that and decisions on campaign finance and juvenile justice. Also, Egypt has a new president. What's next? On Red State-Blue State, the Supreme Court and politics.

After the Vote: What's Next for Egypt? ()
Mohamed Morsi, formerly of the Muslim Brotherhood, has moved into the presidential office last occupied by Hosni Mubarak. But it's too soon to know if it's more than a symbolic triumph. He may be Egypt's first elected head of state, his powers have not yet been determined, and the elected Parliament has been abolished. David Kirkpatrick is Cairo Bureau Chief for the New York Times.
The US Supreme Court: Immigration and Politics ()
Score one for the Obama Administration today as the US Supreme Court ruled that most of Arizona's tough immigration law violated federal authority. It won't be a crime for undocumented workers to look for jobs or fail to register. Is it illegal to demand that suspects "show their papers?" That's still up in the air. And that means the immigration battle is still under way in Arizona and other states.

Election-Year Politics and the Supreme Court ()
The US Supreme Court won't release its ruling on Obamacare until this coming Thursday. But today, decisions came down on money in politics, life without parole for juveniles and Arizona's tough immigration law.
