Arizona Case Will Have Ripple Effect in Texas

"A decision by the U.S. Supreme Court on Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration law could have ramifications for Farmers Branch’s rehearing request on the city’s ordinance that bans [unauthorized] immigrants from rental properties.  The Arizona and Farmers Branch cases have key parallels.  Both cases focus on the preemption argument that federal law overrules state and local law." -  DIANNE SOLÍS, Dallas Morning News, June 17, 2012.
