Rights groups challenge Arizona immigration status check

World Bulletin / News Desk

Opponents of Arizona's tough crackdown on immigration made a bid on Tuesday to challenge a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that will allow police to enforce the so-called show-me-your-papers provision.

A coalition of civil rights organizations asked a federal judge in Phoenix to stay implementation of the key provision of the Arizona law which requires police to check the immigration status of people they stop, the American Civil Liberties Union said.

The immigration status check provision was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in late June.
