(NECN/KVOA: Tucson, Arizona) - Students protesting the new Arizona state immigration law dropped by the office of the state's most powerful lawmaker Monday.

The new law gives police license to check on suspects immigration status when they have reason to believe the suspects are illegally in the United States. 

As KVOA's Rebecca Taylor reports, some of the demonstrators were admittedly illegal immigrants, but that didn't stop them from raising their voices.

At 6:00 PM Monday, four students were arrested for criminal trespassing.

Border Patrol is working on verifying their immigration status.
