Supreme Court Strikes Down Most Parts Of Controversial Ariz. Immigration Law

Here are the sections of Arizona's immigration law considered by the U.S. Supreme Court:
    
UPHELD:
    
- A requirement that police, while enforcing other laws, question people's immigration status if officers have reasonable suspicion they're in the country illegally.
    
STUCK DOWN:
    
- 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.

PREVIOUS STORY:

MSNBC.COM - The Supreme Court on Monday struck down key parts of the tough anti-illegal immigration law enacted by Arizona in 2010.

The law had made it a crime for non-citizens who are unlawfully present in the United States to work in Arizona and requires police officers to check the immigration status of any person whom they have probable cause to believe is an illegal immigrant.

The decision was a victory for President Obama who had criticized the law, saying it "threatened to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans." The Justice Department moved quickly in 2010 to block enforcement of the law.
