Critics have claimed that Governor Jan Brewer has picked this fight over SB1070 for political gain for her upcoming gubenatorial election campaign and now that claim might have some merit. Apparently, she made the statement supporting “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” on July 1st in Sedona, Arizona to the Sedona Men’s Republican Club.
“My plan is to tell the federal government to do their job, and their job is to secure our border,” Brewer said. “We’re going to get our border secure, and then we need to talk about what we can do about a comprehensive immigration reform package.”
Brewer said she supports immigration reform, but border security should come first. She said lawmakers have failed because they want immigration reform before tackling border security.
Apparently Governor Brewer does not realize that a large majority of Americans do NOT want to reward illegal alien behavior with any kind of amnesty. We don’t care what fancy name you want to give it - ANY path to legalization for those who came here illegally - either by sneaking across the border OR over staying a VISA - is simply encouragement for more to come here the same way.
Does she not realize that when President Reagan granted the 1986 Amnesty - we were told NEVER AGAIN would we grant amnesty to illegal aliens??? We were also told the border would be secured to stop the flow of illegal aliens. We know that promise has never been kept and that 1986 amnesty has caused illegal immigration to increase since then by 20 times! In 1986 we were dealing with only a million or so illegal aliens. Now we have 20 million! Americans are tired of being lied to and we do NOT want or need “Comprehensive Immigration Reform”.
We simply need to enforce ALL of the existing laws against illegal immigration - including employing, smuggling, aiding, abeting, or harboring illegal aliens. Prosecute the employers, the churches that give them Sanctuary, the cities that give them Sanctuary and put our troops on our OWN border to protect US instead of worrying about every other country in the world besides the US!
Please contact Governor Jan Brewer and tell her your you do NOT support “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” now or ever!
Gov Jan Brewer
