PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The state Elections Division says a measure to repeal Oregon's sanctuary law has qualified for the November ballot.

The initiative petition needed more than 88,000 valid signatures, and it easily surpassed that threshold.

The 1987 law prohibits state agencies from inquiring about a person's immigration status if they haven't committed another crime and bans state and local law enforcement from coordinating with federal immigration officials on raids and roundups.

Supporters of a repeal say the law shields people who have committed crimes from potential deportation.

Those who back the sanctuary law say it was passed to address racial profiling.
