AZCentral:  A federal countersuit filed by Gov. Jan Brewer alleging that the federal government is failing to secure the border from an “invasion” appears to be on shaky ground.

The suit, which was filed in connection with the federal suit over Senate Bill 1070, got its first day in court Thursday as attorneys for the state defended it from a U.S. Department of Justice motion to dismiss.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton will issue a ruling at a later date, but she made it clear she was leaning toward dismissing at least some of the state’s allegations.
