Holder wants to challenge Arizona law he hasn't read

The new Arizona immigration law as sparked harsh debates, protests, criticism, and threats of constitutionality lawsuits by the U.S. Justice Department.

Fueling the controversy is Attorney General Eric Holder who has recently indicated "that the Justice Department was considering a federal lawsuit against Arizona's new immigration law" CNN reports in its article: Holder: Feds may sue over Arizona immigration law dated May 9, 2010.

Ironically, however, in a House Judiciary Committee hearing on May 13th, Holder admits that he has not read the 10 page law. He has only glanced at it and read newspaper accounts.

What kind of Government makes predefined judgements about laws that they have not even reviewed?

It's hard to have confidence in a leadership who simply aims to placate illegal immigrant ethnic groups while failing uphold the laws they are sworn to uphold.

In Holder's defense, he must be credited for responding truthfully when questioned. So then we must ask, Who is he trying to fool? The immigrants? The protesters? The President? Or, the common citizen?

Lest we not forget the May 6-9 Pew Research poll that finds: 73% approve of the Arizona law requiring people to produce documents verifying legal status where only 23% disapprove.

Count me in the 73% bracket. Where do you stand?
