The Supreme Court laid out one of its most anticipated decisions on Monday: whether or not Arizona cops could determine whether someone is an illegal immigrant under the so-called "show me your papers" law, SB1070. The Court upheld that main provision, but cut down three pertaining to the state.
When Arizona's SB 1070 was passed to crack down on illegal immigration, some immigrants fled the state. But SB 1070 also affected their children. A recent study showed more high school students were living without their parents. After SB 1070 passed, they were living alone, or with friends and relatives. How else did SB 1070 change the lives of Arizona's youth? And how did it affect them emotionally? Why were so many afraid to talk to the study's researchers? Also, what other changes should we expect to see with anti-migrant laws spreading to other states?
