Statement by Attorney General Sam Olens on Supreme Court Actions 

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States issued a ruling partially upholding Arizona’s immigration law.

“My office participated in an amicus brief filed by 16 states in support of Arizona’s right to partner with the federal government in enforcing immigration law,” said Olens.  “I am pleased that the Supreme Court recognizes that states have an important role to play in upholding the law.  I look forward to further proceedings in the Eleventh Circuit regarding Georgia’s immigration reform law in the light of this decision.”
