[WASHINGTON, D.C.] - At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing today, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder agreed that the Department of Justice needs to work with state and local law enforcement agencies to resolve communication problems that have resulted in difficulty apprehending international fugitives wanted for committing serious crimes in Illinois. The communication problems, uncovered by a Chicago Tribune investigation and described by Holder today as "unacceptable," also prompted Durbin to call on federal and local law enforcement officials earlier this week to develop an action plan to make sure that all efforts are coordinated in order to bring these dangerous fugitives to justice.
