Mitt Romney blasted President Barack Obama on Monday after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld part of an Arizona law cracking down on illegal immigration that Romney had endorsed while seeking the Republican presidential nomination.

 

"Today's decision underscores the need for a president who will lead on this critical issue and work in a bipartisan fashion to pursue a national immigration strategy," Romney said in a statement.

He called the immigration issue a "broken promise" by the Democratic president, whom he faces in the Nov. 6 election.

The Supreme Court upheld the requirement that police check the immigration status of anyone they stop, rejecting the Obama administration's stance that only the U.S. government should enforce immigration laws in the United States.

But the court ruled that three other provisions in the Arizona law went too far in intruding on federal law, including one making it a crime for illegal immigrants to work and another requiring them to carry their documents. (Reporting by Patricia Zengerle; Editing by Will Dunham) </
