    Lawmakers looking for solution to immigration issue

    Republicans and Democrats still can't agree on the steps that should be taken to secure the Southern border. It seems the only thing the two parties agree on is that there is a problem, however, what needs to be done, much less how to do it or pay for it is a continuing battle. FOX's Leland Vittert reports.

PHOENIX (AP) - A federal court is allowing lawyers from the U.S. Department of Justice to participate in arguments on April 2 over Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's bid to overturn a ruling that bars police from enforcing a minor part of the state's 2010 immigration law.

Brewer is appealing a decision by a lower-court judge who ruled in favor of civil rights groups that sought to block the law's prohibition on harboring illegal immigrants.

The Justice Department had filed a friend-of-the-court brief urging the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to reject the appeal and asked to participate in the April 2 arguments.

Brewer's lawyers say the harboring ban is aimed at confronting crime and doesn't conflict with federal policies.

Opponents say the ban is trumped by federal law.
