Supreme Court: Whiting

Today, the United States Supreme Court has decided Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting (U.S. May 26, 2011).  This decision generally holds two main points: (1) Arizona may require employers to use E-Verify; and (2) Arizona may revoke or suspend the licenses of employers that knowingly or intentionally employ unauthorized aliens.

In Whiting decision, Justice Roberts wrote that the Arizona law was not preempted by IRCA, because it falls under IRCA’s express preemption clause.
