Arizona immigration law opposed

Religious leaders call on Washington to overturn Arizona law on illegal immigration.

    Arizona has been heavily criticised for adopting legislation that allows police to stop suspected illegal immigrants and ask them for proof of citizenship.

    A group of religious leaders from the state, opposing the law, have travelled to Washington to lobby for a federal law on illegal immigration to overturn the controversial Arizona legislation.

    However, an opinion poll suggests that many Americans support the state's strict new measures.
