In April 2010, the state of Arizona in the United States, which shares a border with Mexico (southern border for Arizona, northern border with Mexico) passsed a law titled SB 1070 with the goal of cracking down on illegal immigration by increasing the involvement of local law enforcement in identifying and reporting illegal immigrants. Various aspects of the law were challenged in a case that went up to the US Supreme Court in 2012. Arguments for the case were heard on April 25, 2012, and the decision was made on June 25, 2012, with some aspects of the law being struck down as unconstitutional.
