Arizona v. United States


  • No Comments

Contributed By


Students will examine a controversial law passed in the state of Arizona that directs law enforcement officers to investigate suspected unauthorized immigration. They will recognize the
constitutional issues of preemption, reasonable suspicion, and equal protection and relate them to the facts of the Arizona law. Students will then judge whether several sets of facts are valid
examples of reasonable suspicion. They will also evaluate the law in a simulation using the GRADE policy-analysis rubric.
