Guv criticizes Obama administration, wants meeting

Gov. Jan Brewer is criticizing President Barack Obama’s administration on border security and immigration.

Brewer said Friday she wants to meet with the president and his Homeland Security secretary while in Washington next week.

Brewer said the borders still aren’t secure and that the federal government should be moved quicker to do more to change that.

And she said it’s “unconscionable” that some administration officials hadn’t read Arizona’s new law targeting illegal immigration before criticizing it.

Brewer said she has asked for a meeting with Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano while in Washington next week to meet with other governors.

Brewer spoke to reporters after participating in an election canvass.
