Ariz. Gov. Brewer wants separating fence completed
Source: Associated Press

Facing off over illegal immigration, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer told President Barack Obama that Americans "want our border secured" and called Thursday for completion of a separating fence. Obama underscored his objections that the tough immigration law she signed is discriminatory.

Meeting in the Oval Office, Obama said Arizona's law and similar efforts by more than 20 states would interfere with the federal government's responsibility to set and enforce immigration policy.

...

Obama urged her to "be his partner" in working toward a comprehensive overhaul of the nation's badly fractured immigration system. Brewer told The Associated Press afterward that she told Obama her state is not ready for the comprehensive solution he favors.

"I said we need to have the fence completed, have more troops on the border and more resources" for aerial surveillance, she said.

1. Hey, pruneface! You don't make the rules!
President Obama makes the rules, so get over it. If you want that fucking fence, pay for it yourself!

And I agree with him. Actually the fence complied with that law the money just has not been spent yet.

3. I know this is probably astupid solution that can't work, but
I'd love to see ALL (or almost all) the Mexican people leave Az; both legal & illegal! Let the State's residents, along with the Gov. find out just what an asset they are to Az. The neighboring States aren't THAT different, but they sure don't have to deal with Brewer!

6. Lessee...that fence should start at Mexico, go up the border...
of California before turning east as far as New Mexico where it will turn south and return to the Mexican border.

That ought to make all the Aridzonians happy.

10. The fence has already been built in California.
Why is no one calling for a boycott of CA?

11. When did California pass a law saying Police "MUST" stop all "suspected" illegal aliens?
Do you even understand what the boycott is all about? It has nothing to do with a border fence...
