April 25 hearing set on Arizona immigration law

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments on Arizona’s immigration enforcement law on April 25, in the last such hearing of the high court’s current term.

The court will review a federal appeals court decision that upheld a judge’s ruling blocking key provisions of the Arizona law.

One of those provisions requires that police, while enforcing other laws, question a person’s immigration status if officers have reasonable suspicion the person is in the country illegally.

Other blocked provisions would require immigrants to obtain or carry immigration registration papers and make it a state criminal offense for an illegal immigrant to seek work or hold a job.

The U.S. Justice Department sued to challenge the law after it was enacted in 2010.
