A federal judge in Arizona has upheld a new law in that state which prohibits businesses from knowingly hiring illegal immigrants, and allows the state to suspend or revoke the business licenses of companies that violate the law. A number of business and civil rights groups argued that the law unconstitutionally allowed the state government to enforce immigration, but U.S. District Court Judge Neil Wake ruled that the Legal Arizona Workers Act does not abridge the federal government's power to control illegal immigration.
