U.S. Could File Second Suit Against Arizona
United States Attorney General Eric Holder says the Justice Department hasn’t ruled out another lawsuit against Arizona if it engages in racial profiling. The profiling issue isn’t part of the current suit.
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.
