The Supreme Court will rule on whether or not the federal government can overrule Arizona’s strict immigration laws. This is only one of some big cases the Supremes have taken on:
The Supreme Court on Monday intervened in another high-profile case testing the authority of the federal government, saying it will review Arizona’s crackdown on illegal immigrants, which inspired similar state efforts across the country.
Next month, the court will hear an emergency appeal from Texas that questions the role of federal courts in overseeing the deeply partisan issue of political redistricting. And in March, the court has scheduled 51 / 2 hours of oral arguments over the constitutionality of President Obama’s health-care overhaul.
All will be decided before the court breaks for its summer recess and as the 2012 presidential and congressional campaigns move into high gear.
