Police chiefs air concerns with Arizona law

Immigration legislation under consideration in several states and similar to the controversial crackdown in Arizona would have a chilling impact on local law enforcement, Houston Police Chief Charles McClelland said Wednesday.  McClelland was one of nine police chiefs from major cities who met with Attorney General Eric Holder to voice concern about police enforcement of federal immigration law.

“The federal government should bring clarity to this issue,” McClelland said outside the Justice Department after a one-hour meeting with Holder.  McClelland said the government should define the roles of federal, state and local police agencies in enforcing federal statutes, then fund that enforcement.
