Brewer To Obama: ‘We’ll Meet You In Court’


Brewer to Obama: 'We'll meet you in court'Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has said that she will fight any attempt by the Federal government to overturn her state’s controversial new immigration law.

Brewer told CNN that Arizona is willing to engage in a legal battle with the administration over the statute, which has been publicly criticized by President Obama and several members of his inner circle.

"We’ll meet you in court," she said defiantly. "I have a pretty good record of winning in court."

Meanwhile, several media outlets are reporting that Obama has finally accepted Brewer’s request for a face-to-face meeting to discuss why the law is so important to Arizona citizens. Initially, the White House indicated that the president did not have time in his schedule to fit in a meeting with Brewer, who is in Washington this week to attend a governors’ meeting on homeland security issues, Fox News reports.

"The people of Arizona are discouraged," she said during the interview. "They’re fed up. We’ve had security flaws on the border for years now. And it’s time that we do something about it immediately."

Brewer also cited the results of several new polls that indicate that the majority of Americans support the new law, which will go into effect July 29.
