WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court struck down key provisions of Arizona's crackdown on immigrants Monday but said a much-debated portion on checking suspects' status could go forward. The court did not throw out the state provision requiring police to check the immigration status of someone they suspect is in the United States illegally. Even there, though, the justices said the provision could be subject to additional legal challenges.

The program airs prior to the pending United States Supreme Court ruling on the Arizona immigration law that is SB0170.
