Panel Of Judges Hears Arguments On Arizona’s Immigration Law

Immigration-LawLawyers for the federal government say a section of Arizona's 2010 immigration law that prohibits "harboring" people living in the country illegally should be blocked. 

A three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals heard arguments Tuesday from attorneys regarding the harboring section of the state's law, which was in effect from July 2010 until a lower court last year barred police from enforcing it. 

Lawyers for Arizona Governor Jan Brewer say the law applies only to people violating other criminal laws who also are aiding or transporting someone in the country illegally.
