WASHINGTON - The fate of Arizona's tough immigration law is in the balance as the Supreme Court hears its final day of arguments for the current term today.

The Obama administration challenged the law in federal court soon after Arizona's governor signed it two years ago.

Five other states have similar laws -- parts of which are on hold until the high court rules.

Among the provisions under review is one that requires police to question a person's immigration status if officers suspect the person is in the country illegally.
