New Challenge to Arizona Immigration Law

Lawmakers' not-so-tolerant emails may be the key


A federal judge on Tuesday weighed arguments in court about whether a new injunction should be issued against Section 2B, or what some critics refer to as the "show me your papers" clause, in Arizona's immigration-enforcement law.

That provision of Senate Bill 1070 requires law-enforcement officers to make a reasonable attempt to determine the immigration status of a person stopped, detained or arrested if there's reasonable suspicion that person is in the country illegally.
