Rep. Gutierrez: SB-1070 will be ruled unconstitutional one day

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) explains to CNN’s Zoraida Sambolin why he is opposed to Arizona SB-1070.

Gutierrez says, “[SB-1070 is] all about targeting and finger-pointing a particular community and scapegoating that community. We know that’s what they’ve done. They did it in California under Pete Wilson with Proposition 187 in the ’90s, and now, we have a new version of 1070 in our current time.”

He adds, “And I have to say, I think, Zoraida, you and I will have a conversation hopefully sometime at 5:30 in the morning one day and we’re going to find out unfortunately that it is ruled unconstitutional.”

Early Start airs weekday mornings from 5-7am ET on CNN.
