Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Tuesday slammed the federal government for its failure to secure the nation’s border, according to a report.
At a border-security expo in Phoenix, the Republican governor said the government’s “abdication of responsibility is the overarching outrage” of America’s illegal immigration crisis, The Associated Press reported on Tuesday.
Immigration isn’t about skin color or racism, she said, but about protecting Americans. During a talk for law enforcement officers and those working in the border-security industry, Brewer blasted both parties in Washington for their failure to secure the U.S-Mexico border and keep citizens safe.
