Holder And Napolitano Voice Criticism And Concern Over Arizona Immigration Law, Before Review Was Finished

Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano both voiced concern and criticism over Arizona's new immigration law. The review of the bill has not been finished by the Justice Department or the Homeland Security Department. Basically it is the same thing Gibbs did and Obama's 'I do Not Have All The Facts, But The Police Acted Stupidly'.

"Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano were critical Tuesday of Arizona's new law on immigration and Holder said the federal government may challenge it.

Napolitano said the new state law could siphon federal money and staff from hunting down dangerous immigrants.

The critical comments by the nation's top law enforcement official and the Cabinet secretary responsible for preventing terrorist attacks on U.S. soil came four days after Arizona's governor signed a law designed to crack down on illegal aliens.

Arizona's new law is subject to potential abuse, Holder told a news conference. The law -- which takes effect this summer - allows police to question anyone about their immigration status if they have reason to suspect they are in the country illegally, and makes it a state crime if they are.

The Justice Department and the Homeland Security Department are reviewing the state law.
