Supreme Court Rules On Arizona Illegal Immigration Laws


WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court has struck down key provisions of Arizona's crackdown on immigrants.

But the court said Monday that one part of the law requiring police to check the status of someone they suspect is not in the United States legally could go forward. Even there, though, the justices said the provision could be subject to additional legal challenges.

Here are the sections of Arizona's immigration law considered by the U.S. Supreme Court:


- A requirement that police, while enforcing other laws, question people's immigration status if officers have reasonable suspicion they're in the country illegally.


- A requirement that all immigrants obtain or carry immigration registration papers.

- A provision making it a state criminal offense for an illegal immigrant to seek work or hold a job.

- A provision that would allow police to arrest suspected illegal immigrants without warrants.
