Skip to comments.Ariz. Gov. Brewer, Obama meet to discuss immigration enforcement

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) said Thursday that President Obama assured her that he would send White House staff members to her state to talk with officials about efforts to secure the U.S.-Mexico border.
The governor said her meeting with Obama in the Oval Office was cordial, despite their disagreement over the widely criticized state law she signed in April, which gave police greater powers to enforce federal immigration laws.
The White House said Obama would like Brewer to work with him to help pass comprehensive changes to the immigration system that would provide a path to citizenship for those already in the country illegally.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters that, in particular, the president hoped Brewer would help persuade Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to support broad immigration legislation, as he did several times earlier this decade. "I doubt we are going to get comprehensive immigration reform if we don't have John McCain doing what he did during those years," Gibbs said.

"Gov. Brewer -- Doing The Job Obama Won't Do."
Did she ask him to see his papers?
If they’re depending on McCain to push amensty, they’d better hurry. I doubt he’ll be around after January.
I have no problem with a path to citizenship. But I think we need to to be fair.
If you're a criminal alien that has invaded my country, go home and apply for citizenship just like everyone else and get in the back of the line.
And since they’re criminals, they won’t be able to get in.
Works for me.
Obama MUST go to AZ.
no documentation ....
Hmm mmm mmm
"Gee, thanks, Robert. I always knew you guys appreciated my efforts."
