Arizona’s harsh immigration statute, SB 1070, took a judicial beating last month at the hands of the Supreme Court. Of the four provisions reviewed, the Court found three unconstitutional. With several other states considering similar legislation, where does the bill go from here?

On his show Sunday, Chris spoke with the bill’s co-author, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who didn’t sound too worried (two of the stricken provisions are “relatively minor,” he said). After the years the Kansas Republican has spent championing the bill, Chris wanted to know, “Why is this the thing that animates you?”
