Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R.) sided with the bipartisan Senate plan of immigration reform over President Obama’s when asked on 12News in Phoenix this evening.
Obama’s and the Senate’s immigration initiatives are similar in providing a pathway to citizenship for immigrants. The Senate’s key difference is the requirement that the border deemed secure before allowing the citizenship process to begin, a view shared with Brewer.
The Arizona Governor has been a force on the immigration front, advocating for first securing the United States’s borders before any immigration reform is enacted.
Brewer has been an antagonist to Obama throughout her term, being best known for welcoming the President to the Grand Canyon State with a stiff finger in his face.
