Arizona's Governor, Jan Brewer, is speaking up...

...with passion and righteousness.

Human Events
Arizona Governor Blasts Eric Holder

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer scolded Atty. Gen. Eric Holder for holding open the prospect of a lawsuit when Arizona is already facing five legal challenges over the state's new immigration law.

"I would much prefer for them not to file suit, given the fact that they could take the money and help me build a fence on my border," Brewer said in an interview with three HUMAN EVENTS editors by phone from Phoenix....

Brewer has been in the national spotlight since her state enacted legislation authorizing law enforcement officials to question people they detain as to whether they are legal U.S. residents....

Brewer said she sent a letter to Holder on June 4 that answered questions from the Justice Department on the immigration measure.... "Everything constitutional that in fact they could ever talk about is in those other suits," she told HUMAN EVENTS. "I would much prefer for them [DoJ] not to file suit, given the fact that they could take the money and help me build a fence on my border."

Overall, the Governor's legal team is asking the courts to dismiss the lawsuits.

"I hope [Holder's] read [the law] by now," Brewer said, "so that he knows what it exactly says."...

Asked what fellow governors facing similar problems with their borders and illegal immigrants are saying, Brewer mentioned that she has "certainly spoken with [Texas Republican] Gov. [Rick] Perry and [New Mexico Democratic] Gov. Richardson and Gov. Schwarzenegger with regard to it. They, of course aren't facing the problem that Arizona is because we now have been left as the gateway for all illegal immigration, drug cartels and gangs coming into the Americas."

Brewer particularly singled out Schwarzenegger, recalling that "Arnold of course has stated publicly that he didn't support it. He is much different than I am with regard to that. You know, we are a nation of laws and it's illegal and that didn't change his mind. He figured that what he read in the paper was exactly what the bill said and we kind of left it at that."

There is an awakening taking place as to the Constitutional Rights of States vs. the Federal Government. And, in this case, it ought to be the Federal Government that is supporting and assisting the State of Arizona in protecting and defending her's and our borders from the illegal insurgency that is taking place on our soil.

Hello? Has anyone noticed? WE have now ceded three counties of American soil to illegal alien criminals and the Bureau of Land Management has basically given over the Bueno Vista wild life refuge and admitted that illegal Mexican criminals control that area now.

And they are still bantering law suits and BS with Washington?
