What Parts of Arizona's Immigration Law Were Struck down by the Supreme Court?

The Supreme Court found that three key sections of the Arizona immigration law are unconstitutional:

1) Section 3, which makes being undocumented a state crime;
2) Section 5(c), which makes it a crime for an undocumented immigrant to seek or accept work; and
3) Section 6, which allows police officers to arrest anyone they suspect of being undocumented without a warrant

But it will allow Arizona to begin enforcing Section 2(B), which requires officers to check the immigration status of anyone they stop and detain. Many believe that the enforcement of this section will result in racial profiling.
