Ariz. gov signs bill changing new immigration law 

Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill approved by Arizona legislators on the last day of their 2010 session to make changes to the state's sweeping law against illegal immigration.

The law requires local and state law enforcement to question people about their immigration status if there's reason to suspect they're in the country illegally, and makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally. Agencies that don't comply can be sued.

The follow-on bill signed by Brewer on Friday makes numerous changes that she says should lay to rest concerns that provisions of the law will lead to racial profiling.
