U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was in town today Friday May 27th and I had the opportunity to interview him about his outreach effort to the Muslim/Somali community and what the Department of Justice is doing to protect Muslim citizens against hate crimes, discrimination and law-enforcement officials who are over stepping their authoritarian lines. The full interview is available online now.
