(WHAS11) -- A federal court has struck down Indiana's immigration law which allowed police to make arrests without warrants if they have certain immigration related documents.

In her ruling, Judge Sarah Evans Barker says the law violates the Fourth Amendment which protects people against unreasonable searches and seizures.

Last year the United States Supreme Court struck down a similar law in Arizona as unconstitutional.
