Under the law, police are required to make an attempt, when practicable, to determine a person's immigration status if there is reasonable suspicion that the person is an illegal alien during a "lawful stop, detention or arrest made by a law enforcement official." Police may arrest a person if there is probable cause that the person is an alien not in possession of required registration documents and a person arrested cannot be released without confirmation of the person's legal immigration status by the federal government.
A person is "presumed to not be an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States" if he or she presents any of the following four forms of identification:
(a) a valid Arizona driver license;
(b) a valid Arizona nonoperating identification license;
(c) a valid tribal enrollment card or other tribal identification; or
(d) any valid federal, state, or local government-issued identification, if the issuer requires proof of legal presence in the United States as a condition of issuance
There are other interesting provisions of the law, but this intro is already getting to be too long.
