White House: No plans for Obama to visit Ferguson,MO

WASHINGTON (AP) – The White House says President Barack Obama has no plans to visit Ferguson anytime soon.

Officials say they’re mindful that security and logistics for a presidential visit could divert law enforcement resources stretched thin by several nights of demonstrations and clashes with protesters over the Michael Brown shooting.

The president is sending Attorney General Eric Holder to Ferguson Wednesday to meet with FBI and other officials carrying out an independent federal investigation into Brown’s death. A grand jury could begin hearing evidence Wednesday to determine whether police officers Darren Wilson should be charged in Brown’s death.

Obama says he has urged Gov. Jay Nixon to ensure that the use of National Guard units is limited and constructive.
