The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld a 2007 Arizona law that sanctions businesses that knowingly hire undocumented workers and requires them to check the federal E-Verify database before hiring workers. The ruling backed the law that allows Arizona to pull a business' license for at least 10 days after a violation. It rejected the argument that immigration is solely the purview of the federal government. Eight other states have laws similar to Arizona's, and the ruling could lead other areas to pass them, experts said.
