Some Arizona Democratic legislators find themselves in rare agreement with Republican Gov. Jan Brewer on a question related to the state’s controversial law targeting illegal immigration.
Brewer criticized a federal appeals court’s ruling allowing 11 Latin American countries to file a brief supporting a judge’s ruling blocking implementation of key provisions of the law. Brewer said she was offended that foreign governments were meddling in a domestic legal dispute.
Now 10 Democratic state representatives are criticizing the Latin American countries for weighing in with the court. They issued a statement that said the countries “are meddling” in U.S. affairs. They add that it’s a problem for the United States and Arizona to work toward a solution.
