(Newser) – Eric Holder will meet with police chiefs from about a dozen cities, including Phoenix and Tuscon, to listen to their concerns about Arizona's controversial immigration law. The chiefs are worried that the law will “drive a wedge” between police and their communities, eradicating trust they've worked to build “over many years,” they said in a statement ahead of the meeting. The president of Arizona's Association of Chiefs of Police will also be attending, as will chiefs from immigration hotspots like LA and Houston, CNN reports.
