Another High Court Issue Looms over 2012: Immigration

As Obamacare's race towards the Supreme court creates a possible stormcloud over Obama's 2012 election prospects, another contentious issue heads towards the high court with similar possible implications. The hot issue of immigration came into play after Arizona's new immigration law was enacted and challenged.

"Unlike health care, the Obama administration had asked the court to hold off on a big immigration case, saying lower courts should be given more time to consider an array of new state laws seeking to target illegal immigrants."

The outcomes of both cases, Healthcare and Immigration (both expected in June), could be major game-changers late in the Election process.
