Arizona Immigration Law: Should the Feds Try to Reverse the Law?

Police chiefs from across the country, including three from Arizona, will meet with Attorney General Eric Holder in Washington today to share their concerns over Arizona's controversial immigration law.

The 10 chiefs, from major cities including Los Angeles, Houston and Phoenix, argue that the law stretches already-limited resources and could intimidate crime victims and witnesses and keep them from coming forward.

"This bill breaks the trust with our communities," L.A. police chief Charlie Bick told USA Today.

Attorney General Holder has said in the past that he doesn't think the law is a good idea, but he doesn't believe it is racist. He is considering whether to file a federal lawsuit challenging the Arizona law. Five similar suits have already been filed.

Our question to you today: Should the feds try to reverse Arizona's immigration law?
