Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer Slammed The Feds
|AZ Gov. Jan Brewer|
At a border-security expo in Phoenix, the Republican governor said the government’s “abdication of responsibility is the overarching outrage” of America’s illegal immigration crisis . . . .
Immigration isn’t about skin color or racism, she said, but about protecting Americans. During a talk for law enforcement officers and those working in the border-security industry, Brewer blasted both parties in Washington for their failure to secure the U.S-Mexico border and keep citizens safe.
“Of course, there are those in Washington who will tell you — from 3,000 miles away, by the way — that our border is more secure than ever,” Brewer said . . . “No amount of distortion can hide the absolute truth. The federal government, Republicans and Democrats alike, have failed every single American — all of us.”
Brewer cited the killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry — who was shot with guns linked to Operation Fast and Furious — as a prime example of the lack of security on the border.
“America’s failure to understand this problem at a national level and to deal with it has haunted borders like mine for decades,” she said.
