*Indiana joins Utah and Arizona as targets of ACLU lawsuits after the Indiana Legislature passed enforcement-only immigration bills in response to the federal government’s inaction. IBJ But the Supreme Court gave a victory to states today when it upheld a 2007 Arizona law that sanctions businesses for hiring illegal immigrants. WA Post The ACLU was disappointed by the ruling, and that’s a win for everyone.

*Cesar Conde, President of Univision Networks, now works for President Obama. NRO If you’re wondering about a conflict of interest problem . . . Look! A squirrel!

    To me, if SCOTUS allows states to sanction employers for hiring the undocumented, then it should also be allowed for states to allow employers to hire the undocumented (i.e. through programs like HB 116).

    It’s definitely a good decision for states.
