An Arizona policeman has asked a federal court to overturn a state immigration law he says will force him to use racial profiling.
The law requires police to question people about their immigration status if officers suspect the person is in the US illegally and if they have stopped them for a legitimate reason.
Officer David Salgado says the law would force him to break federal laws.
The case is one of many challenging the measure, which takes effect on 29 July.
The Obama administration's justice department has also challenged the legislation in federal court, arguing it usurps the federal administration's authority to set immigration policy.
The next hearing in that case is scheduled for 22 July

How can he be forced to racially profile? That doesn't make sense. I think he's using his job to try and add credence to his political opinions, but going about it the wrong way.
