Will SB 1070 Survive the Supreme Court?

Senate Bill 1070 is due to be heard in the Supreme Court this week, as the oral arguments are scheduled for Wednesday.

Today's the second anniversary of the immigration bill being signed into law by Governor Jan Brewer, and since then -- or even before that -- everyone's developed an opinion on 1070.

The basic issue with the law is whether Arizona can is allowed to take federal immigration law into its own hands, which the Supremes will have to figure out.

Since lower courts have prevented certain aspects of the law from taking effect, it's still possible that 1070 as passed in 2010 becomes the law of the land, completely thrown in the garbage, or approved in pieces.

This morning's question:

What will the Supreme Court do with SB 1070?
