In her own words: Gov. Jan Brewer on Mexico joining lawsuit against Arizona’s illegal immigrant law

Full text of Gov. Jan Brewer statement on Mexico, as provided by her office

I am very disappointed that the national government of our neighbors and friends to the south has chosen to file a brief in federal court that distorts the truth about Arizona and the United States.

Despite false assertions and factual inaccuracies expressed by the country of Mexico in their recent brief filed in U.S. federal court, Arizona’s immigration enforcement laws are both reasonable and….

…constitutional. They mirror what has been federal law in the United States for many decades, and they have built-in and clear protections for civil rights.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and Mexico president Felipe Calderon

The United States was formed as a nation of laws, and not of men. Arizonans are some of the most hospitable and generous people in the world, and we welcome visitors to share our incomparable natural beauty.

Our cultures and our trade are intertwined, and so must be our respect for the rule of law.

We refuse to accept that the United States government is unable to protect its citizens against a relentless and daily barrage of narco-terrorist drug and human smugglers. We will enforce, respect, and defend the laws of our land, including our laws that prosecute discrimination. We have taken additional steps to update training for our officers to legally enforce our new laws and to specifically prevent illegal racial profiling.

I will continue to fight tirelessly to protect the citizens of Arizona, and to defend Arizonans in federal court. I believe that Arizona will ultimately prevail and that our laws will be found constitutional.

  1. We are seeing nothing on the national news about this lawsuit? What’s up? Also very little on what Obama is up to. We hear he’s trying an end run around our legal elected Representive’s in Washington by giving the illegal invaders amnest through executive order. This is against the wish’s of the American citizens, all citizens Democratic and Republican,Tea Party and all others have made it clear secure the borders and then talk about what kind of amnesty. There has to be some way to stop him from putting his will first before the American people. We already have over 15 million legal citizens out of work and millions of illegal mexicans working, just who does this man believe he is suppose to protect. America or Mexico?? We have three branch’s of government for a reason, and each of the three parts has their job to making this country safe. One man making decisions is a DICTATOR has anyone told him that ? The more you see and hear what this man is doing the more you believe he is trying to bring this country down.
