Hearing to be held Monday on Ariz. immigration law

A judge will hold a scheduling conference Monday in one of the three remaining challenges to Arizona’s 2010 immigration enforcement law.

The lawsuit by the League of United Latin American Citizens alleges that Arizona’s law should be invalidated because it’s superseded by federal immigration law.

Gov. Jan Brewer’s lawyers have urged U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton to dismiss the lawsuit and argued that the opponents in question were offering mere speculation about the law’s effects.

Bolton blocked enforcement of the most controversial parts of the law, such as a requirement that police, while enforcing other laws, question people’s immigration status if officers suspect they are in the country illegally.

The sections that were allowed to take effect are being challenged by the League of United Latin American Citizens.
