A federals appeals court has turned back the latest effort by a civil rights coalition to bar police from enforcing the most contentious part of Arizona's immigration law.

Opponents of part of the law requiring police to question some people they contact about their immigration status wanted the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to block its enforcement.

That provision survived a U.S. Supreme Court review and it went into effect Sept. 18 after a federal judge in Phoenix said it could be enforced.

In a ruling Tuesday, the appeals court in San Francisco denied the coalition's emergency motion for an injunction pending appeal and their request for certification to the Arizona Supreme Court.

An attorney with the National Immigration Law Center says the coalition is assessing its next step.
