Arizona Governor Jan Brewer just won’t stop. A few months back, Governor Brewer was caught on video giving an earful to President Barack Obama about his immigration policies and their impact in Arizona and sending him a scathing letter.
Now, she’s back and doing it again. Monday, while insisting that she was happy with the Supreme Court’s choice to uphold much of Arizona’s controversial immigration law, she also pointed a finger at the Obama administration. She accused them of basically telling Arizona to “drop dead”
During a recent news conference, Governor Jan Brewer said
“Today is a day when the key components of our efforts to protect the citizens of Arizona, to take up the fight against illegal immigration in a balanced and constitutional way, has unanimously been vindicated by the highest court in the land.”
Ironically, by evening she was voicing a very different opinion. While being interviewed by Greta van Susteren on Fox News, Brewer conveyed deep frustration with the Department of Homeland Security; Homeland Security recently decided to cancel their agreement with Arizona law enforcement agencies giving them permission to check the citizenship of those they suspect of being illegal immigrants.
While on the show, Jan Brewer said,
“This is politics at its best. It’s just unconscionable. What they said to Arizona is, ‘Drop dead, Arizona. Drop dead and go away. We’re going to ignore you.’ It’s almost become apparent that they can do whatever they darn well want! They don’t want to enforce their laws. They won’t let us help them enforce their laws.”
