Boozman Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on Arizona Immigration Law


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court's decision on the Arizona immigration law.

"It is unfortunate that we even need a Supreme Court ruling on this law in the first place. Arizona passed its own immigration law because the federal government refuses to enforce the current law. In light of that, I was pleased to see the Court recognizes that the state of Arizona, or any state for that matter, has the ability to ascertain if a person is here legally. That's just commonsense," Boozman said. "The state of Arizona is taking steps to ensure the safety and well-being of its citizens. States have a right to do that. If the Obama Administration enforced the rules on the books, however, we wouldn't need this decision in the first place. We are a nation of laws. We can't pick or chose which ones we are going to enforce. We have to enforce them all."
