Congressman Ruben Hinojosa has criticized the Supreme Court's decision on a Arizona immigration law provision requiring police to check someone's legal status in the country. Congressman Hinojosa is the first Vice Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and stated, "Letting stand a provision that requires police to check someone's status because they suspect them of coming into the country illegally is preposterous. While I am pleased that some of this unconstitutional law was defeated, it still leaves the door open for bigotry and harassment."
