Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is demanding that a reference to the state's controversial immigration law be removed from a State Department report on human rights.

The United States lists its legal challenge to Arizona's immigration enforcement measure on a list of ways the government is protecting human rights. It's part of a report to the United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights.

In a letter Friday to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Brewer says it is "downright offensive" that a state law would be included in the report.

Arizona's law requires police enforcing other laws to investigate the immigration status of people they suspect are illegal immigrants. Critics say it will target minorities, but Brewer says it prohibits human rights abuses.
