Arizona's illegal immigration law SB 1070 is not constitutional, argues Attorney General Eric Holder

The government's lawsuit against Arizona is not about morality, it's about legality.

Attorney General Eric Holder made that argument on Sunday, arguing that the state has overstepped its bounds with SB 1070, which requires local police to inquire about the immigration status of suspected criminals.

"I understand ... the frustration of the people of Arizona and the concerns that they have with regard to the amount of illegal immigration that occurs," Holder told Bob Schieffer on CBS News' "Face the Nation."

"But the solution that the Arizona legislature came up with is inconsistent with our federal constitution," he said.

The lawsuit, filed last week, targets the controversial law which is set to go into effect on July 29.

Gov. Jan Brewer called the case "outrageous," but believed Arizona would come out the winner.

"We feel very, very confident that we stand on good ground," she said last week. "We will push forward, and believe from our heart that it is constitutional and is the right thing to do."
