The Supreme Court is set to hear arguments Monday in a case about whether states can force people to prove their U.S. citizenship before registering to vote.
At issue is the legality of Arizona's voter-approved requirement that prospective voters document their U.S. citizenship in order to use a federal registration form that doesn't require such proof.
A federal appeals court threw out that part of Arizona's Proposition 200.
The state of Alabama says it will allow hundreds of immigrants to take driver license tests under a new Obama administration rule.
While the state has fought the administration over immigration laws, it says it will honor certifications granted under the program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
A state trooper spokesman, Sgt. Steven Jarrett, says certain offices will begin issuing licenses under the program on Friday.
The state says 631 people have been approved for certification in Alabama, and as many as 1,500 could be.
