Katie Couric asked Barack Obama about reports that he has an aunt that has been living in the U.S. illegally.

Obama said, “If she has violated laws, then those laws have to be obeyed. We’re a nation of laws. And, obviously, that doesn’t lessen my concern for her. I haven’t been able to get in touch with her. But, I’m a strong believer that you obey the law. ”

CBS showed clips of Couric’s interview with Obama on The Early Show and more will air more on the CBS Evening News tonight. CBS News has more details here.
