The Supreme Court is refusing to hear a Maryland immigration enforcement dispute. The Court announced it won't hear Frederick County’s appeal of a ruling last August by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The dispute now goes back to U.S. District Court in Baltimore for further proceedings. Roxana Santos, an immigrant from El Salvador, claims that two Frederick County sheriff's deputies illegally discriminated against her in 2008 when they arrested her on a civil immigration warrant, claiming that she was detained and her immigration status checked only because she looks Hispanic. The County says Santos raised suspicion by trying to hide as the deputies drove past her as she ate lunch outside her workplace.
