Here's the nuts and bolts of today's decision in Arizona vs. The United States.  The Court overturned provisions of the law which:

1. required aliens to carry documentation of citizenship;

2. prohibited illegal aliens to seek work; and

3. allowed police to stop persons they suspected were illegal.

The Court UPHELD the provision in the law which required police officers to check immigration status of persons they arrest for other crimes.
