Mess with President Obama and he'll unleash a horde of dangerous illegal aliens into your state as "payback." At least that's Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's (R) take, the latest in a growing body of GOP conspiracy theories surrounding the federal government's decision to release hundreds of immigration detainees ahead of sequester cuts.PERMALINK | COMMENTS (0) | RECOMMEND RECOMMEND (0)
As the face of her state's crackdown on illegal immigration, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is never far removed from the issue whether she wants to be or not. But she could prove an important test case for Republican efforts led by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) to sell conservatives on the Senate's proposal for immigration reform tied to new border security measures.
"I think that it's wonderful that everybody is coming together in cooperation to find a solution," Brewer said on CBS's Face The Nation on Sunday when asked about the Senate bill. "And I'm very, very appreciative of Senator Rubio in stating and encouraging that before anything is done that we have border security established. And then I think we can move forward."PERMALINK | COMMENTS (0) | RECOMMEND RECOMMEND (0)
