The article focuses on a legislation enacted by Arizona which offered powers to the state and local officers for enforcing immigration law and perform immigration checks in case of reasonable suspicion. A reexamination is conducted based on preemption in immigration law jurisprudence for analyzing federal and state conflicts with reference to the trial of Arizona v. United States. The affirmative duties of the officers and the enforcement mechanism of the U.S. Congress are also discussed.
