On September 18th, the federal district court in Phoenix lifted the injunction on Section 2B of SB 1070, allowing it to take effect immediately. The ACLU of Arizona and coalition partners appealed that decision to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and are waiting for a decision. In June, the Supreme Court confirmed that three other key provisions of SB 1070 are unconstitutional. Several other parts of SB 1070 are blocked by separate injunctions issued by the district court.
Section 2(B) requires the police to ask someone they have already stopped about their immigration status, if they have a reasonable suspicion that the person may be undocumented.
