Thursday, July 1st, 2010 Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is calling on President Obama to secure the border and combat the increasingly tense immigration problem. And this time, its personal. The Arizona governor has put out a campaign ad aimed at gaining President Obamas attention. Washington is broken Mr. President," the governor says in the ad. "Do your job. Secure our borders." The ad takes place next to a sign near the Arizona border which reads "Danger - Public Warning, Travel Not Recommended." The ad comes just days after Ms. Brewer met with President Obamas White House staff, and just three weeks after the president hosted Ms. Brewer at the White House. As for the ad, the Mr. Brewer seems to have sparked a debate more grounded in politics than policy. The sign featured in the ad were recently installed and Ms. Brewer claims they were installed following her meeting with the president. "Two weeks ago I met with President Obama. He promised that we would get word from his administration," Mr. Brewer said on Wednesday. "Well, we finally got the message: these signs." The Arizona governor has come under political fire after signing into law a controversial immigration law. The law grants broad power to law enforcement to inquire into anyones immigration status should they have reasonable cause to do so. Critics claim that civil rights will be violated, while advocates claim too little has been done to deal with immigration reform. Earlier this week, the White House announced a detailed a plan to send 1,200 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border, with 524 going directly to Arizona. The Arizona governor has requested 6,000 National Guard troops. http://www.thestatecolumn.com/articl...llout_4783.php ----------------------------------------------- Is there anyway we can fire this clown? All he does is say what America CAN'T do! He's no FDR. The border is too big. Were stuck with all these Mexicans. There's no way we can deport millions of people. He's good at telling people what to do if they're thousands of miles away but he'll let Latin America spit in his face. Get rid of this coward and get a real American who's willing to put an army on the border and get this war started. Why did we fight all those wars, OBAMA! Stop surrendering to Mexico!
