Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer speaks to reporters after the Supreme Court questioned Arizona's "show me your papers" immigration law in front of the Supreme Court in Washington in April. On Thursday, Brewer's office said the most contentious section of Arizona's immigration law is expected to go into effect shortly. A spokesman says Brewer is pleased with a federal judge's decision on Wednesday to allow enforcement of the law. It enables officers, while enforcing other laws, to question the immigration status of those they suspect are in the country illegally. The National Immigration Law Center says it's considering "legal options" after the ruling.
