Brewer attends federal appeals court hearing

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says she is “hopeful” the judges on the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will lift a stay and allow Senate Bill 1070 to be enforced.

The governor attended a hearing Monday morning in San Francisco as a state hired attorney argued that Arizona is bearing the brunt of the federal government’s failure to enforce immigration laws.

In a statement released after the hearing, Brewer says the health, welfare and safety of the citizens of Arizona are irreparably harmed every day the courts allow S.B. 1070 to be put on hold and the federal government refuses to enforce all immigration laws.
