Attorney General Eric Holder Admits To Not Reading Arizona’s Immigration Law

Despite repeatedly voicing concerns about Arizona's new immigration enforcement law in recent weeks and threatening to challenge it, Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday he has not yet read the law -- which is only 10 pages long.

"I have not had a chance to -- I've glanced at it," Holder said at a House Judiciary Committee hearing when asked by Rep.Ted Poe, R-Texas whether Holder has read the state law cracking down on illegal immigrants.

"I'll give you my copy of it if you would like," Poe responded.

Holder told reporters last month that he fears the new law is subject to abuse and that the Justice Department and the Homeland Security Department are in the midst of conducting a review.

The Arizona law requires local and state law enforcement to question people about their immigration status if there's reason to suspect they're in the country illegally, and makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally.

The law has sparked protests across the country, including a City Council-approved boycott of Arizona businesses by Los Angeles.But proponents deny that the law encourages racial profiling, with some saying the local controversy is a symptom of a broken federal immigration system.

However, varying public opinion polls show 60-70 percent of Americans support the law.

Holder said last month that a number of options are under consideration, including the possibility of a court challenge.

On Thursday, Holder said he plans to read the law before reaching a decision on whether he thinks it's constitutional.

When asked by Poe how he could have constitutional concerns about a law he has not read, Holder said: "Well, what I've said is that I've not made up my mind. I've only made the comments that I've made on the basis of things that I've been able to glean by reading newspaper accounts, obviously, television, talking to people who are on the review panel...looking at the law."

On Sunday, Holder said he does not think Arizona's law is racially motivated but voiced concern that its enforcement could lead to racial profiling.

Holder said he understands the frustration behind the Arizona law, but he warned during an appearance on ABC's "This Week" that "we could potentially get on a slippery slope where people will be picked on because of how they look as opposed to what they have done."

Dumbass. He should know you can't believe the media before making such and important decision.

Every time I hear or read some fuck-nugget reporter wannabe call it an "immigration" bill it makes me want to stomp kittens.

This just in, it is an illegal alien bill and doesn't have jack-shit to do with immigration.

All he had to do in the first place when asked about the Law on the talk shows is, "I haven't read the bill, so I can not comment about the law. From what I've been told, it can open up the doors to unfair racial profiling. But as I said, I haven't read the bill, so I will withhold opinion on it until I've read it". EASY! Piece of cake.

Instead of doing that, he's been saying nothing but negative things about the Bill.

The problem is he is out there running his damn mouth without reading it. If he cant spend the 20min to read the law, he better not spend 2 minutes talking about it.

I think everyone of our senators and congressmen should be fired, most put on trial for treason.
In the mean time, randomly select people in the phone book.It would work much better for the "American" people.

What a retard. But in the end, it doesn't even matter. The law is the law, and it's difficult to get it repealed. However, now that they have the win, they need to run with it, and do what politicians do best. Add a little here, add a little there, until it's basically impossible to be an illegal in AZ. My hope is that once that gets going, the other border states will grow a pair of balls and at least imitate AZ a little bit.

Based on his views and the way he and the rest of the circus administration handle the rule of this land, I'd say there is a crucial piece of paper none of them have read.

Maybe after November, when Perry is re-elected. He won't do anything to jeopardize this election.

Assholes didnt read the healthcare bill either. The Congressional Budget Office announced that its gonna cost 300B+ instead of the 100B proposed while trying to pass it. They were asked why... Their answer "we didnt have enough time to read it"

Lolz. Sadly, no. It is a quote from Thomas Jefferson, telling us what we should do. More to the point, what we should have left in place.

"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second
down with the chains of the constitution so the second will not become the legalized
version of the first." - Thomas Jefferson

Napolitano Admits She Hasn't Read Arizona Law But Says She Wouldn't Sign It

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/vid...t_sign_it.html

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano admits she hasn't read the Arizona immigration law, but passed judgment on it anyway. "That's not the kind of law I would have signed," she declared. "I believe it's a bad law enforcement law. I believe it mandates and requires local enforcement and puts them in a position many do not want to be placed in," Napolitano said. "When I was dealing with laws of that ilk, most of the law enforcement agencies in Arizona at that time were opposed to such legislation," she claimed.
