The Case Against Arizona Was Settled in 1874

In the Case of the 22 Chinese Women the Supreme Court set the precedent for how it should handle the Arizona Immigration Law.  In this case, the Court struck down the power of states to any immigration policy other than that of the Federal government.  If the states had the power to make their own policies, our international standing and relationships could be hurt by the independent actions of a state.  This has been the settled law since 1874.  The Arizona Legislature needs a history lesson.  Let's see if the current court needs one as well.
