Part of state's immigration law falls under Supreme Court ruling

Washington, D.C. is abuzz this week, the final one of the Supreme Court's term, by the end of which the court will have published two monumental opinions affecting millions of Americans. In a moment viewed by some with eager anticipation and others with reluctant apprehension, today the court handed down its decision on Arizona's controversial immigration law, S.B. 1070.

A number of illegal immigrants in Maryland and Washington, D.C. know only this country. Although born elsewhere, they came here with their parents at a young age looking for a better life. They have grown up in U.S. schools and adopted U.S. customs, but still retain illegal status and are therefore at risk for deportation. But that risk has been temporarily reduced under the terms of an order recently issued by President Obama, to the potential benefit of many immigrants.

While some industries have contracted or remained stagnant during the economic downturn, science-related jobs are growing three times faster than the rate observed in the broader economy.

According to information released by the Department of Homeland Security, the review of more than 400,000 deportation cases to weed out immigrants with clean criminal records and ties to family in the U.S. is more than halfway over. But after reviewing approximately 288,000 deportation cases during the past seven months, only about 4,400 cases have been closed, far less than the number many had initially expected.
