Attorney General Eric Holder said he may order a second legal challenge of Arizona's tough new immigration law if he believes it is resulting in racial profiling, he said Sunday.

Holder made the announcement on CBS' "Face the Nation" news program. The Department of Justice has already sued to overturn the law based on the concept of preemption that immigration falls under federal rather than state control.

The law is schedule to go into effect July 29.

Holder? Hasn't the President fired this loon yet? This isn't about what is right or what flies with our Constitution. This is all about Chicago style politics (sorry my brothers in the windy city). Enough already. Let's move on to the more important issues.

I beleave as a Sheriff, every state should pass a law as Arizona did. There is no end to the crime that illegals are commiting in this country. I for one do not beleave we should pay for their care and they all should be sent back if caught. If they have green cards them let them in to work, if not then stop them from entering. We need for the government to protect our boarders. enough of this goodie goodie stuff before its to late!

Just knowing that eric holder is the United States Attorney General makes me physically ILL. He sues my state because we want to do thier job because obama refuses to and then they sue Arizona so we can't. But he refuses to prosecute the new black panthers for voter intimidation when they have them on tape doing it. What the hell has happened to The United States of America.
