On July 23, 2012 IRLI filed an important legal brief, ordered by the Third Circuit, explaining how the recent Arizona v. United States (SB 1070 decision) impacts the legal arguments in Lozano v. City of Hazleton, the landmark lawsuit challenging local immigration enforcement ordinances. On appeal by IRLI, the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011 vacated a lower ruling against the Pennsylvania city of Hazleton, shortly after its first ruling upholding Arizona’s immigration enforcement laws, in Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting. Access the IRLI letter brief below.
