On Sunday, Gov. Brewer noted on Facebook that she had an important announcement regarding SB1070 to release the following day. Once again, Gov. Brewer has made Arizona proud!
Though Gov. Brewer made some good, surprising, confusing and disappointing decisions in the last legislative session, in no way should support for her be abandoned. I do not see her as a RINO; I see her as thoughtful and open to hearing what the state house does with the bills in the next session. Besides, some of her glowing achievements this session were installing a state militia and making it possible to build our own dang fence.
So thank you, Gov. Brewer, for taking the fight directly to the Supreme Court. As a result, the border/immigration problems will remain up front as they should!
Having SB1070 centerstage allows other issues occurring as a result of the federal government’s negligence to be front and center also. Education, healthcare, employment, economics – what part of American life is NOT affected by the border situation? Brewer is right – nothing can be addressed until the border is secure, and her response to Obama’s visit to Texas tomorrow was excellent. Imho, it’s the same posturing as his visit to Ground Zero.
So whatever disappointments some had in Gov. Brewer a couple weeks ago, one thing is clear: she is committed to dealing with the border and immigration issues realistically – not ‘comprehensively’.
