“This is no way to treat the people of Arizona,” said Governor Brewer. “To learn of this lawsuit through an Ecuadorean interview with the Secretary of State is just outrageous. If our own government intends to sue our state to prevent illegal immigration enforcement, the least it can do is inform us before it informs the citizens of another nation.” –
Gov. Jan Brewer
But Governor; we are all world citizens now, aren’t we? Border are lies according to the left, correct?
Back to the news…
Gov. Brewer learned of the lawsuit that Obama is going to bring against the State of Arizona during an interview that Hillary Clinton gave to Ecuadorean NTN24 on June 8th. The governor’s response to the lawsuit follows with a link to the pdf (H/T KG and TheRightScoop).
Governor Jan Brewer Learns of President’s Directive to Sue Arizona via Ecuadorean Television Interview
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Paul Senseman
June 17, 2010 (602) 542-1342
PHOENIX – Governor Jan Brewer said she was stunned and angered to learn during an Ecuadorean television interview with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that the Obama Administration had decided to sue Arizona over its recently passed anti-illegal immigration law, SB1070. Video of the interview can be seen at Governor Brewer’s Arizona Border Security Information website:www.azgovernor.gov/AZBorderSecurity.asp
Secretary Clinton announced during the interview on June 8th that President Obama has directed the U.S. Justice Department to “bring a lawsuit against the Arizona law.” “This is no way to treat the people of Arizona,” said Governor Brewer. “To learn of this lawsuit through an Ecuadorean interview with the Secretary of State is just outrageous. If our own government intends to sue our state to prevent illegal immigration enforcement, the least it can do is inform us before it informs the citizens of another nation.” Governor Brewer said, “I just visited with the President in the Oval Office about our differences over immigration policy, and the one firm understanding we had was that within two weeks he would provide details of his commitment to deploy National Guard troops to the border. While I am grateful that communications have taken place about a possible visit by Administration staff before the end of the month, there is not yet a confirmed date. More importantly, no information about additional troop and border security enhancements has been provided by the Obama Administration to the citizens of Arizona.”
Governor Brewer recently announced the creation of a legal defense fund for private contributions in defense of Arizona’s illegal immigration enforcement measures – www.keepazsafe.com. Over $22,000 in contributions have been made to the border legal defense fund since its announcement yesterday evening. Over $26,000 had previously been sent unsolicited to the Governor for legal defense of Arizona, for an approximate total of $48,000 in the fund.
We need another “Mexican Expedition” the same sort that Gen. Pershing led against the outlaw Pancho Villa tin 1916. Bring the troops home from Afghanistan/Iraq and clean up the insurgents in Mexico. A bonus being if we annex it we will get some proven oil reserves. BHO ought to look at taking over countries instead of companies.
If we can just go into Iraq and Af. to “clean them up” why not Mexico? It is certainly more in our national interest than Af.!! If Calderon is threatened with losing his country, he’ll start paying attention! — maybe put up his own “Iron Curtain”.
What was desert Storm? Just a surgical strike to tell SH to keep his hands off Kuwait. Well what about these 3 counties in AZ we have ceded to the Mexican cartels
How much more of AZ do we need to give them before we do something? With Phoenix being the #2 kidnap capital, how can US citizens feel safe? We monitor the Pakistan/AF border, and run drones into Pakistan, why not Mexico if they can’t/will not control things? Calderon will shape up and put up his own wall rather than lose his country.
Let’s give the Mexican people what they want American Education, American health care, American opportunity! — without their having to move.
If this does not show , to anyone paying attention, that this country is now fighting it’s 2nd Civil War, than I do not know what will. This Civil War is not about geography but rather about ideology . This is most certainly a us versus them with the us being the so called leadership and we are the them.
How darn Hillary or anyone else in this so called Gov. make such an announcement during a foreign interview. Do they think there will be no backlash at home. People are awake and no longer accept it is Bush’s fault, he most certainly had faults but everything this administration does can not grandfather in Bush.
People for the love of God wake up and stand up. If you are here you are either wanting information or you are the ones who make my computer go hyper while I am here. Either way it is time to take a stand and be part of the solution not the problem.
I agree with KeninIll that we need to bring our troops home and put them on our southern boarder to defend us here. But that will never happen until we get the fraud and his fellow mobsters out of OUR house.
Hillary Clinton betrayed the people of AZ, if not the whole country. She needs to go along with all the others.
Just goes to show that the people’s vote doesn’t matter anymore! The Government is here to tell you what’s good or bad for you. These butt wipes HAVE to go NOW!!
GLOBAL POLITICS FOLKS,Finally seeing the real side of hillary and bubba?Boarders are lies? My huevos !
By the way the people who “wont go along with the matrix” are guity of “determinism” well guess what
Americans are waking up, and we’ve been known to get pretty determinde!
make no mistake amnesty means more votes !And do you think any of htese young new citizens would join our military?
mr opieceo crap,close that freaking boarder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the response once seems a little late. How many more of these illegals have to enter our borders before something gets done. In stead of focusing on cap and trade, bail outs, Healthcare, and this should have been a top priorty!
i read an article yesterday that portland, oregon passed a resolution to shun arizona…not their exact wording; however, that is how juvenile it seems. portland is also going to support flagstaff (liberal bastion in northern arizona) and tucson (large illegal population) in their suits against their own state government!
the other news on the net (though not new to arizona citizens) is the “loss of use” by citizens of approx 3500 acres in southern arizona due to the danger of drug traffickers and armed illegals/cartels. the sheriffs in that area state they are out-manned and out-gunned, so there is no way to safely clear that area and return it for safe use by the citizens.
sheriff joe was great at the rallys we had the past three weekends…..he shared that he has no intention of turning those that break our new law over to ice…at least not until they serve their time in his tent city. his attitude regarding his project, expanding his tent city, was quite jovial…lol
for anyone that says illegal immigration is a victimless crime, refer them to these sites:
http://www.ojjpac.org/memorial.asp (a memorial site for victims of illegal aliens)
http://www.desertinvasion.us/index.html (a wealth of info regarding the impact of illegal immigration’s impact. be sure to look at the pictures of invasion to check out how they are trashing our beautiful desert)
thanks to all for their support.
Obama is not going to stop the flood of illegal Mexicans, Somalis, Muslims, Haitians, or any other illegal. If you have read the 45 Tenants of Communism ( amended to 47) you should have a clear idea about Obama’s game plan for America. Once all the Mexicans, and other non American scumbags are given citizenship the Communist Party of the USA will control more then 50% of the voting base insuring that the march to a Communist America continues. Unfortunately we seem to bitch a lot about the Communist governments ever increasing control of our lives, but we do nothing else. Jan Brewer is going to get steam rolled by our Communist President just like the rest of us. Amnesty for scumbags, Cap and Tax are all coming soon and once Obama gets a few more commies on the supreme court, freedom of speech, and gun ownership will soon be ground under the heel of the Communist Dictator Obama. Elections and words will not stop the Obama regime’s agenda, only we the people can stop it if we have the guts!
