Arizona Could Face Another Lawsuit

A second lawsuit challenging Arizona's immigration law could be in the works at the U.S. Justice Department, if it turns out that the cops there use racial profiling

The Obama Administration sued Arizona last week, arguing the state is impinging on federal responsibilities for dealing with immigration.

The suit didn't deal with concerns about racial profiling so that it could focus on the most serious problem with the law, Attorney General Eric Holder said.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer said she believes federal officials would have included racial profiling in the suit if they thought it was an issue.
