Attorney General Eric Holder said Sunday he does not think Arizona's law cracking down on illegal immigrants is racially motivated but voiced concern that its enforcement could lead to racial profiling. Holder said the U.S. has a national immigration problem that cannot be cured with a "state-by-state solution."
The law empowers police to question anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally, and that could lead to what some see as harassment of the state's large Hispanic population.
The top U.S. prosecutor 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."
In that Holder is the TOP Law Enforcement official in the Country. He just shot the White Houses plan of attack on Arizona-via using Civil Rights and other trumped up, untested, feel-good laws/suits on them.

Not sure why you are so excited about this...it doesn't change the fact that this law will be challenged and most likely struck down.
