A coalition of civil rights groups agreed to end its challenge of Arizona's landmark 2010 immigration in a deal in which the state issued guidelines on how police officers must enforce the law's most contentious section.

Arizona is facing a new lawsuit over a policy that allows some immigrants who are protected from deportation to obtain driver's licenses but not others.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's campaign has confirmed he will host an immigration speech in downtown Phoenix on Wednesday night.

Phoenix police have arrested four people for blocking parts of a major downtown road at a protest outside the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Phoenix.

Police moved the crowd off the street at around 12:30 p.m., but four protesters remained including two who chained themselves to ladders.

Activists cheered as handcuffed protesters were placed into squad cars and then calmly dispersed shortly after.
