The Kansas attorney who helped draft the Arizona immigration law and has advised officials in other states wanting to crack down on illegal immigration is calling the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling a "huge victory."

Kris Kobach says Monday's decision will give Arizona and other states the authority to check the immigration status of someone they suspect is in the country illegally.

Kobach, however, says the ruling is "not a complete victory" since the court threw out several key provisions, including one requiring all immigrants to carry registration papers.

Kobach, a Republican, is a former University of Missouri-Kansas City law professor who now serves as Kansas secretary of state.

Critics of the Arizona law say it would allow law enforcement to racially profile people.
