The Supreme Court has struck down key provisions of Arizona's crackdown on immigrants. But the court says one part of the law -- the part 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 face 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.
