A federal judge has blocked the most controversial parts of Arizona's immigration law, delivering a last-minute victory to opponents of the crackdown. The overall law will still take effect Thursday at 12:01 a.m., but without the provisions that angered opponents -- including sections that required officers to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws. The judge also put on hold parts of the law that required immigrants to carry their papers at all times.
