PHOENIX - As Governor Jan Brewer waits for the Supreme Court to rule on the legality of Senate Bill 1070, she issued an executive order to prepare officers for its implementation.
Supreme Court justices announced they will not rule on the controversial immigration law Monday.
The ruling could come Thursday or next Monday.
In the meantime, Brewer issued a two-page executive order essentially telling the Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board to redistribute a training DVD for SB 1070.
The videos are to be distributed to all law enforcement agencies across the Arizona.
The DVD discusses everything from reasonable suspicion to foreign vehicle registration.
A major point is made in the video instructing officers to not racially profile.
It also includes types of acceptable identification that should end an officer's suspicions about a person's immigration status.
SB 1070 was passed two years ago and signed into law by Governor Brewer.
The move sparked a massive debate and legal challenges which have ultimately led to the Supreme Court.
Portions of the law were blocked including a provision requiring police to question people's immigration status while enforcing other laws if there's a reasonable suspicion they're in the country illegally.
The Supreme Court originally said it would have a ruling by the end of June and many speculated the ruling would happen Monday morning.
