Arizona Gov. Brewer to meet Obama…..She vows to fight for the new State Immigration Law……

President Obama and Gov. Jan Brewer are set to meet face-to-face at the White House on Thursday to discuss Arizona's efforts to combat illegal immigration.

This story has been REALLY hyped up……

The new law goes into effect sometime in July….

It will surely be fought by the US Justice Department as an infringement on the FEderal Governments right to enforce immigration law…..

Which is a Federal repsopnsibilty….NOT a state one…..

The popular opinion is the Feds will probably win this one….

Arizona Governor Brewer knows  this, so does the Arizona legislators that passed the Bill…

To them this is just a cry out for help on a problem that they see Washington doesn’t understand …or take seriously enough..

The problem is that Immigration can never be solved by JUST enforcement…

The Cops know that….and they have come down against the bill’s mandates also…

But it politics time …

So instead of working for a comprehensive approach to solve the problem….

Obama…like George Bush before him…..

Will be drawn by media polls into offering a military approach to satisfy the red meat crowd……..

This again puts any complete solution on the back burner…and makes Brewer look good at home……

The tough-talking Arizona governor will be taking her case for border security to President Obama on Thursday, and has no plans to back down.

Gov. Jan Brewer, who has been both cheered and jeered for supporting a law aimed at fighting illegal immigration that some call “racist,” plans to take the White House to task for failing to secure the nation’s border.

“Mr. President, we need our borders secured,” she told CNN‘s John King on Tuesday night. “How can we work together to get it done? We need your help.”

She may find herself in an uphill battle, however.

The President has called Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration effort “misguided,” and the Attorney General has raised the possibility of filing a lawsuit to stop it.

If that happens, Brewer told CNN: “We’ll see [Obama] in court.”

“I have a pretty good record of winning in court,” she added.

Brewer indicated she would not agree to postpone the law, which is set to go into effect at the end of July.

“Eighty percent of American[s] agree with me, agree with the state of Arizona, and I think it’s important that the President and I sit down and discuss why it is important.”

President Obama announced last month that he plans to ship 1,200 more National Guard troops to the border to beef up security, and also seeks to send $500 million to fund improvements.
