Federal officials to discuss border with Gov. Brewer

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer will meet Monday in Phoenix with federal officials dispatched by President Barack Obama to provide specifics for Arizona regarding his plans to tighten security along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The meeting in Brewer’s office stems from Brewer’s June 3 visit to the White House where she and Obama discussed border security and immigration. Brewer has asked for specifics on how the plans apply to Arizona.

A White House spokesman says the delegation is headed by John Brennan, deputy national security adviser for homeland security and counterterrorism.

The meeting come as Arizona officials await word on a possible federal challenge to the state’s controversial immigration enforcement law.
