4:00 pm
contempt. >> kennedy and roberts went soft on immigration, which either worries you on healthcare or tells you it was compensation as they will strike the law down and holder in contempt. >> bret: see you next time. >> shepard: this is "the fox report." tonight, gas prices down. home sales up. the good news for the american economy. but why did stocks plunge? plus, show me your papers. the supreme court with a major ruling on immigration. ♪ chanting] >> it sends a message to states like arizona. >> this land is not your land. >> the state of arizona and senate bill 1070 was vindicated. >> the court striking down key components of arizona's law. but it's what the justices kept in that could cause the most controversy.
4:01 pm
packing drones. >> we can do it with the small one, we can do it with a big one. >> shepard: and if the terrorists try it over u.s. soil, that could be a disaster. tonight, the new hijacking risk in the skies. plus, baby bear, that garage is not a jungle gym. tonight a cub gets caught in an unusual predicament and momma bear shows up to help. first, from fox this monday night, the supreme court's history making decision on immigration that is just everybody talking and claiming victory. the decision came this morning. people were gathered on the court steps most of them waiting for the news president obama's healthcare overhaul. we now know justices are planning to release that decision on thursday. shortly after 10:00 a.m. today, the court issued its verdict on arizona's immigration law. the one called sb 1070. the justices voted to uphold
4:02 pm
the part of the law that requires cops to check the immigration status for they detain for other reasons if police have reason to suspect they are in u.s. illegally. show me your papers. the judge struck down all carry registration papers. along with the part that makes it a crime for illegal immigrants apply for job. one that would allow police to arrest suspected illegal immigrants without a warrant. again, all of that struck down. arizona's governor jan brewer signed the bill into law two years ago. she portrayed today's verdict somehow as a victory for her side. >> the heart of senate bill 1070 has been proven to be constitutional. arizona and every other state's inherit authority to protect and defend its people has been upheld. >> meantime, critics of the law, including the senate majority leader harry reid say they are concerned about the one section that the supreme court upheld.
4:03 pm
>> as long as this provision remains, innocent american citizens are in danger of being detained by police unless they carry immigration papers with them at all times. >> shepard: , arizona's immigration law will likely face more challenges in the weeks and months ahead. and five other states have also passed legislation similar to that in arizona. so today's ruling doesn't end the fight. far from it. it doesn't mark the end of one significant showdown. and now we have team fox coverage. ed henry on president obama's strategy and reaction. carl cammeron on the governor romney reaction. first, to shannon bream live at the supreme court with details on the ruling. shannon, explain more about why the justices ruled the way they did. >> well, the majority of the justices came together in an opinion authored by justice anthony kennedy. the bottom line on the three provisions they struck down were that those provisions were preempted by federal law. federal immigration law and enforcement is up to the federal government. well, justice anthony scalia in a scathing defense said well, that would be great if the feds actually enforced the
4:04 pm
government's laws that are now on the book also federal immigration. he pointed specifically in his opinion to the president's recent pronouncement that will waive deportation for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants taking a white house. >> there it are challenges ahead for this ruling, shannon. ely. governor brewer says today she believes the remains provision of sb 1070 can go into effect emme adly. she acknowledges there are already lawsuits waiting in the wings and they were drawn up before we ever got this decision today. whether the government decides to re-sue or not the aclu says it will. take a listen to both sides. >> federal government has failed the american people regarding immigration policy. has failed to protect its citizens, has failed to preserve the rule of law and has failed to secure our borders. >> state legislators decide they wish to enact similar laws as to sb 1070. our answer to them is simple. we will see new court. >> so while the two sides
4:05 pm
don't aagree on much, they do agree, shep, this battle is not over. >> shepard: shannon bream live tonight at the court. the president, is he pleased that the supreme court struck down the key provisions of arizona's law. but he says he he is still quite concerned about the impact of what remains. ed henry is traveling with the president. is he live tonight in boston. ed, the president says is he worried about how that remaining portion of the law could be enforced. >> yes, shep. and obama administration is sticking it to the state of arizona a bit by the department of homeland security announcing that they are not really diagnose to help enforce that remaining provision about show me your papers and all that business. the homeland security department are not going to send ice agents out to actually dig around on that stuff unless the state of arizona finds out it's a felon or someone of a real high priority that would send them out there because they say they have limited resources to enforce it the president himself was in new hampshire before fundraising here in boston. he had an event where he gay a campaign speech for almost 40 minutes and never mentioned
4:06 pm
this supreme court decision perhaps because new hampshire homogenous not the place where immigration reforms are at the top of the list. obviously a big campaign issue. he put out a written statement saying what this decision makes unmistakingly clear is that congress must act on comprehensive immigration reform. a patchwork the state laws is not a solution to our broken immigration system. it's part of the problem. that's the president's pitch in part to hispanic voters around the country. he has a big lead with them right now. and he is trying to make the case that republicans have gotten extreme on this issue. interesting though, as you noted, as big as this decision is, what could be even bigger is thursday on h. they decide on healthcare. that is the president's signature domestic achievement. that could end up being a much bigger campaign issue in november depending how the supreme court rules tonight. shep. >> republic presidential candidate mitt romney says today's decision is evidence of barack obama's failures on immigration. and he says the federal government has just not met its responsibilities when it comes to securing our borders.
4:07 pm
team fox coverage continued with carl cammeron who is live with the romney camp in scottsdale, arizona tonight. governor romney was very clear about this. he was for this arizona law when he was in the primary season, but now he is in the general election season, is he not taking a position. >> well, that's not exactly right. but, he was definitely criticized today for trying to sort of walk a very fine line initial utterances about. this he too put out a paper statement in which he said states have a rirkts indeed an obligation and duty he said to protect their borders and protect their security when the federal government isn't doing it and he spent much of his time criticizing president obama as he has in recent weeks saying that obama's immigration policies have essentially failed the nation. later this afternoon at a fundraiser not open to cameras, romney spoke a little bit longer and he he said, and i quote. given the failure of immigration policy in this country, i would have preferred to see the supreme court give more latitude to the states, not less. there are states now under this decision that have less authority, less latitude to
4:08 pm
enforce immigration laws. and romney makes the argument that all of this is a consequence of president obama's failure to keep a campaign promise which was to pass comprehensive immigration reform in his first term. mr. romney did not say whether he accepts the decision of the supreme court or not. in essence, is he trying to argue that he is running for president of the united states. and that these are state issues and that when he is the commander and chief. the chief executive he will make sure immigration policy isn't enforced federally. >> the top court also released decisions on several other controversial cases. the justices today rejected a plea that it revisit its own ruling on campaign finance laws. two years ago the supreme court ruled in favor of the conservative group citizens united. that 5 to 4 ruling allowed corporations and unions to donate unlimited money to federal election campaigns. a decision which gave rise to the now famous super pacs. supporters of the law claim its free speech. poo then nents say the money
4:09 pm
is corrupting politics. as part of today's decision, the court struck down a monday dana law which limits corporate campaign spending. thanks to this supreme court decision, the experts say the 2012 presidential election is almost certain to be the most expensive in history. the court also ruled that state courts can no longer automatically sentence juveniles convicted of murder to life in prison without the possibility of parole. the cases involved surround these two convicts who were each convicted of murder for crimes they committed as teenagers. judges sentenced each to life without parole but today the top court ruled 5 to 4 that those sentences were cruel and unusual punishment as defined by the eighth amendment to the constitution. presidential politics survey vets, either -- one will do. at least when it comes to the economy. that's according to a new poll from the associated press that asks folks how much impact the outcome of the election will have on our economy.
4:10 pm
48 percent saided election outcome would have a great deal or a lot of impact. 26 percent said just some. and 24 percent said a little or no impact. that poll coming as we get some positive news about the economic recovery today. details ahead along with a look how europe's pain is our gain when it comes to prices at the person. plus, photo finish at an important track event. and you have to hear how they might decide which of these runners gets to go to the olympics and represent america. from the journalists of fox news this is the monday fox report. welcome aboard!
