Kyl opposes immigration ruling

Republican Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona says a recent court ruling blocking most of the controversial sections of Arizona’s new immigration law was wrong and that possible tweaks to the law by state legislators likely won’t be enough to ease the court’s concerns.

Kyl said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that it would be more likely that Congress could act to fix the problem by reaffirming its intent that the nation’s laws be enforced and by providing more resources to states dealing with illegal immigration.

The senator also says that until the American people believe the federal government really intends to enforce the laws against people being in the United States illegally, he doesn’t think Congress will have the political will to tackle comprehensive reform.
