News junkies yesterday had one of those classic moments involving the Supreme Court. The High Court ruled on Arizona's immigration law.
INSKEEP: And there was a period of frantic uncertainty as reporters and analysts tried to figure out what the ruling meant. Now it is clear the Court has given a mixed verdict to Arizona's law, casting doubt on copycat laws in other states.
Let's return, now, to the governor of Arizona, Jan Brewer. As we heard a moment ago, she's calling this a win, even though the Court struck down most of the Arizona law and said it would wait and see how the show me your papers provision is applied.
GOVERNOR JAN BREWER: Arizona's and every other state's inherent authority to protect and defend its people has been upheld.
INSKEEP: Governor Brewer is one of many Arizona voices responding to the ruling. Here's NPR's Ted Robbins.
