PHOENIX (AP) — Demonstrators are going ahead with plans to march to the state Capitol in Phoenix today to protest Arizona's new immigration law.

A federal judge put most of the law on hold yesterday, including sections that require immigrants to carry their papers and law officers to check on a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws.

Other less contentious provisions were allowed to take effect today, including a section that bars cities in Arizona from disregarding federal immigration laws.

The protesters are planning a sit-in at the office of Sheriff Joe Arpaio (ar-PEYE'-oh) in Phoenix. The sheriff says the protesters will be arrested if they are disruptive. He's also vowing to go ahead with a crime sweep targeting illegal immigrants.

Later today, Gov. Jan Brewer is expected to ask the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco to lift the preliminary injunction and to expedite its consideration of the state's appeal.
