Holder To Watch AZ For ‘Racial Profiling’

From his smitten fans at the Associated Press:

Holder: US to watch Arizona for racial profiling

Sun Jul 11, 2010

WASHINGTON – The Justice Department hasn’t ruled out filing a second lawsuit challenging Arizona’s immigration law if evidence shows racial profiling at work, Attorney General Eric Holder says.

The Obama administration sued Arizona last week, arguing that the state is impinging on federal responsibilities for dealing with immigration…

The suit didn’t deal with concerns about racial profiling so that it could focus on the most serious problem with the law, Holder said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CBS’ "Face the Nation." In six months or a year, his department might look into the law’s impact on racial profiling, he said.

"If that was the case, we would have the tools and we would bring suit on that basis," Holder said.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who defends the state immigration law as constitutional, said she believes federal officials would have included racial profiling in the suit if they thought it was an issue.

"Why would they have to hesitate, after all the comments they made, and all the outrage that they made against the bill in regards to racial profiling, that it didn’t show up?" Brewer told The Associated Press during a break in the National Governors Association meeting in Boston…

That’s a good question Governor Brewer. But don’t worry.

Mr. Holder (with the help of the ACLU) will find a trumped up case soon enough.

    Arizona should watch Holder to make sure he’s enforcing the law.

    The prisoner is running the assylum.

    Fool! The New Black Panthers went free. Who is watching Eric Holder?

    Isn’t dismissing a case of voter intimidation because the perpetrators are black and the victims are white considered racial profiling?

    But let’s punish a state because of their law restricting illegal immigration – what a great way to get back at the white oppressors. After all it’s mostly whites whose earnings go to pay the food stamps, delivery fees, and schooling of Mexican illegals.

    And since the state law is a mirror of federal law, you know in the wackos’ minds that if Holder thinks AZ’s rules promote racial profiling, then federal laws do too. Either that or the liberals are just in it to punish conservative states and appease their base.

    So much for genuine governing.
    “Thug in chief” is too kind.

    It’s astounding how deliberate the MSM is in neglecting to mention that they have to have lawful contact with a person before they can even inquire about their status.

    I don’t consider profiling illegal lawbreakers racial profiling, but law breaking profiling. And certainly an apology from Holdier calling us cowards for not discussing race. To think candidates used to argue who would be tougher on deterring crimes. Holder only seeks American people to sue.

    Correct me if I am wrong – but the Federal Government has laws in place re Immigration and Border Security but are not enforcing them at all in most cases/places – have I got that right?

    Thus AZ in a desperate attempt to stop the destruction, crime and overrunning of their state by Illegals (drug runners, people smugglers and of course the gangs) – enact a STATE LAW to protect their STATE BORDER?

    Under that 10th Amendment – Doesn’t AZ have that right? Most especially since the Federal Laws on the books are not being enforced much at all?

    And crap – there is an easy, peasy way to avoid the ‘racial’ profiling bs – ask every single traffic stop and/or criminal arrest – to show citizenship/bcs no matter what the color, no matter what the race, no matter what the political affiliation.

    This is a load of bs – America is going down the tubes and we have an Administration bending over backward to enable the Illegal, criminal element of color over every other citizen in the US – didn’t we fight a War and loose 600,000 dead to put a rest to this problem? Leave it to the Leftists liars to make it even worse in the 21st century.

    God Help America – and Arizona.
