U.S. and Arizona Yield on Immigration


PHOENIX — The Obama administration has moved to drop its legal fight against what is arguably the most controversial provision of Arizona’s sweeping immigration law, the so-called show-me-your-papers provision permitting police officers to pull over people based on the suspicion that they are in the country illegally.

In return, Arizona has agreed to stop fighting to restore a section of the law that gives the police the power to arrest those who harbor people living in the United States illegally.
