US Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting

Oral Argument December 8, 2010

An Arizona law requires that state employers check the immigration status of all job applicants through the federal E-Verify database — in spite of the fact that the federal law insists that the database is to be used on a voluntary basis — and subsequently revokes the licenses of companies that fail to comply. The Supreme Court is set to issue an opinion on whether or not this state law is overstepping powers granted to the federal government exclusively.
