Skip to comments.Arizona versus the United States? (Who will win in the battle between Jan Brewer and Barack Obama?)
Posted on 07/21/2012 11:49:59 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Arizona is fighting against a two-front assault. The first is of no surprise: trying to secure the state's border against illegal immigrants. The second one, related to the first, has President Obama and his administration using their powers to intimidate and bully the state. Under this administration, the federal government has not stepped up to the plate to help enforce the Supreme Court decision upholding the heart of S.B. 1070 and allowing law enforcement to ask for ID to determine who is and is not legally here after stopping someone for a violation. Instead, the president is using his powers in an attempt to make this law unenforceable.
American Thinker interviewed Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) to get their opinion on what is transpiring.
Supreme Court Justice Kennedy, in writing his opinion, noted, "With power comes responsibility, and the sound exercise of national power over immigration depends on the Nation's meeting its responsibility to base its laws on a political will informed by searching, thoughtful, rational civic discourse. Arizona may have understandable frustrations with the problems caused by illegal immigration while that process continues."
Governor Brewer agrees and told American Thinker that if the federal government were doing its job, there would be no need for S.B. 1070. As she travels around the country, she is heartened that "across America, I have found that people support the rule of law and S.B. 1070.
Those against this bill try to make Arizonans look like bigots and racists. I get so tired of having to defend that, especially since those of us that live in the Southwest are very diverse. We all go to school together, go to work together, go to Church together, and are each other's neighbors."

Brewer should declare an emergency and order her National Guard (fully armed and with REAL bullets) to the border. Simple as that. Screw the DHS, ICE, Obama and his wrecking crew.
Obama is nothing but an empty suited puppet. It’s the people pulling his strings that Gov Brewer is fighting against.
I am a proud natural born citizen of the United States of America, and I will always be on the side of America. Sadly, our White House is occupied by the worst dregs of OWS, and it no longer represents America, freedom, or the Constitution. I’m on Arizona’s side in this dispute, because that is the American side.
Arizona should sue the government for not fulfilling their duty to protect and defend its citizens. They probably would win (?) Then you have the other side of the coin of who owns the courts. I guess maybe they could lose. ACK, I don’t trust anything anymore!
Say what? Sneaking over another country's border uninvited is either right, or it's wrong. Is it okay to sneak into your neighbor's house and raid the fridge when he's not home?
How hard is it to figure that out?
This would be an excellent tactic about 2 weeks before the election, to draw attention to voter fraud
Obama has already won and he will continue to win on this issue unless/until he is removed from power.
The real remaining question is......... what will Romney actually do with the immigration issue?
Recommendation: Learn Spanish.
Flip a coin. We now have arbitrary rule if judges, not law.
Gov. Brewer has other options available. Calling up the militia to repel an invasion comes to mind, if the National Guard doesn’t have enough boots to line the border.
And I agree ... doing this two weeks before the election would be just perfect!
