Despite opposition from both the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a number of civil rights groups, the U.S. Supreme Court voted late last month to uphold an Arizona law that requires companies in its jurisdiction to use the federal E-Verify system for checking the immigrant status of job applicants.

Provisions of the law imposing penalties on those who “knowingly” hire unauthorized foreign workers were also upheld.

Chief Justice Roberts, writing the opinion for a 5-3 majority in Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting, asserted that the Arizona law was consistent with the federal Immigration Reform and Control Act provisions allowing states to impose immigration sanctions related to business “licensing and permitting.”
