More Arizona Bashing

Today, Attorney General Eric Holder held a pep rally for state and local law enforcement [2] officials who object to the Arizona immigration law.

Perhaps having not read the law himself [3] he hoped to bring in some law enforcement officials who might have.

More likely it is just another attempt by the administration [4] to demonize Arizona.

Holder is not helping. Playing politics with immigration and border security is never going to solve the problem of broken borders and a deeply-flawed immigration system. To address these issues we need real solutions. The White House has known since day one what it needs to do [5].  So far no sign yet that the president is doing the right things.
