Arizona revises immigration law

Arizona's governor has signed a bill that slightly changes the big immigration law passed there recently. The new language says police will check the immigration status of anyone they "stop, detain or arrest." Supporters say they hope this will mollify people who worried police would investigate the status of witnesses and victims.

The revision also says police can check the immigration status of people involved in municipal or city code violations, the Arizona Republic reports.
