Breaking hard on all wires now. In a stunning defeat (again) for the Obama administration, a key portion of the Arizona immigration law, SB 1070, has apparently been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in a split decision where the key portion of the law, Section 2b allows state and local police to determine status of a suspected illegal alien.
