Alabama immigration voter registration

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.

Arizona officials say they should be able to pass laws to stop illegal immigrants and other noncitizens from registering.
