Rep. David Dreier (R-CA), along with Adam Schiff (D-CA), is the author of the "Justice for Peace Officers Act" that seeks to do something about cop killers who've fled to Mexico.
Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley says that newly-modified bill ends up helping those suspects:
...On Tuesday, Cooley and [Los Angeles Police Protective League President Bob Baker] both said they still weren't satisfied with the changes and that Congress needs to force the administration to impose sanctions against Mexico until the country changes its policy of refusing to extradite criminal suspects who could face the death penalty or life in prison without parole...
Speaking on KFI, Cooley says the bill "does nothing except cause problems, inject the federal authorities into an area they aren't familiar with, and just provides political cover for Dreier... the law's not protecting us..."
Cooley accuses Dreier of advocating for either Mexico or for those who want to appease that country, and in the linked article talks about capitulating to them.
