Prohibits enforcement of:

Section 3 creating a crime for the failure to apply for or carry documentation of legal residency

Portions of Section 5 creating a crime for an illegal immigrant to solicit, apply for or perform work

Section 6 authorizing the warrantless arrest of a person where there is probable cause to believe the person has committed a public offense that makes the person removable from the U.S.

Allows enforcement of:

Portions of Section 2 prohibiting Arizona officials, agencies and political subdivisions from limiting enforcement of federal immigration laws; requiring state officials to work with federal officials with regard to illegal immigrants; allowing legal residents to sue any state official, agency or political subdivision for adopting a policy of restricting enforcement of federal immigration laws to less than the full extent permitted by federal law

Section 4 amending the crime of human smuggling

Portions of Section 5 creating a crime for stopping a motor vehicle to pick up day laborers and for day laborers to get in a motor vehicle if it impedes the normal movement of traffic; and creating a separate crime for a person in violation of a criminal offense to transport or harbor an illegal immigrant or encourage an illegal immigrant to come to or live in Arizona.
