Cruz interviewed by 'Daily Journal'

June 06, 2011

An article, “Arizona Immigration Law Passes Muster,” in the May 25 edition of the Daily Journal included an interview with clinical professor Evelyn Cruz, director of the College of Law’s Immigration Law & Policy Clinic.

Reporter Robert Iafolla wrote about a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold an Arizona law that punishes businesses for employing undocumented immigrants. The high court found that federal does not pre-empt the state’s employer sanctions law.

“What the court said was that Arizona can create its own workplace law,” Cruz said. “It didn’t say employers have carte blanche in their hiring practices.”
