PHOENIX — Arizona's top officials say they plan to announce the next steps in the state's appeal of a decision that put the most controversial parts of the state's immigration enforcement law on hold.

Gov. Jan Brewer and Attorney General Tom Horne scheduled a news conference for 1 p.m. Eastern time Monday at the state Capitol for the announcement.

The state is appealing a federal judge's ruling blocking key provisions of the law, including a requirement that immigrants get or carry immigration registration papers.

Brewer's lawyers have argued the federal government hasn't effectively enforced immigration law and that the state's intent in passing the law was to assist federal authorities.

The U.S. Justice Department has argued the law intrudes on its exclusive authority to regulate immigration and burdens legal immigrants.
