Pretty strong stuff coming from a governor of a state. But I guess when Obama's out there making phony claims that Hispanic families will be rounded up when going out for ice cream one minute, then joking about the Arizona law the next minute; Gov. Jan Brewer had had enough.
Her campaign released this video:
If Obama was doing his job Arizona wouldn't need to pass this law that has so many on the left foaming at the mouth in willfully ignorant indignation.
In December 2008, the U.S. Justice Department said that Mexican gangs are the "biggest organized crime threat to the United States." In 2009, Phoenix had 316 kidnapping cases, turning the city into our nation's kidnapping capital. Almost all of the persons kidnapped were illegal immigrants or linked to the drug trade.
"The very same week that Governor Brewer signed SB 1070, a major drug ring was broken up and Mexican cartel operatives suspected of running 40,000 pounds of marijuana through southern Arizona were indicted. A week later, a local deputy sheriff was assaulted by suspected drug smugglers carrying an automatic weapon," said campaign spokesman Doug Cole. "The drug trafficking and border violence is out of control in Arizona and demands serious attention. President Obama and Congress ignored several requests from Governor Brewer for help in securing the border. Instead of helping, President Obama chooses to crack jokes to an adoring crowd. Mr. President, this is not a laughing matter."
Obama: Take a day off golfing and DO YOUR JOB! SECURE THE BORDER!
