Jan Brewer: ‘Orchestrated’ Anti-Trump Protesters Have ‘Allegiance’ to Mexico (Audio)

“What day are we going on now, seven? And they’re still out there protesting. And obviously, I have even recognized a couple of people and the signs are the same signs that we’ve seen all seven days, practically. They obviously don’t have jobs, right? So what better things do they have to do? So they’re just out there marching away. And these kids that are leaving school. If I was the principal of that school, I’d lay down the law. This is outrageous. It’s just out of control.”

Tuesday on KTAR News 92.3 FM Arizona radio, when discussing the protests over the victory of President-elect Donald Trump, former Gov. Jan Brewer (R-AZ) said, “When they’re flying the Mexican flag, obviously their allegiance isn’t to the United States, it was to Mexico.”

Brewer said, “I think the majority of them are very orchestrated. I mean it’s very organized in my opinion. I think It’s just awful, just awful.”

She continued, “They’re not very sympathetic when they’re flying the Mexican flag. Obviously their allegiance isn’t to the United States, it was to Mexico. They’re not entitled to behave like that, I don’t believe. You know, people protest, it’s fine. A lot of them aren’t legal citizens and some of them are and they didn’t even vote and now they’re outraged. They could at least give him a chance.”

Jan Brewer Vows Arizona Won’t Go Blue for ‘Lying Killer’ Hillary (Video)

Tuesday on KTAR News’ “Mac & Gaydos,” former Arizona governor Jan Brewer called Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton a “lying killer,” who will not win Arizona in November in the presidential election.

Brewer said, “That’s wishful thinking I think on behalf of the Democrats that they are going to win Arizona. I don’t think that they can win Arizona … I don’t. I really absolutely don’t. Now of course if they are willing to put hundreds of thousands of dollars here, we’ll take it and put in our economy and our media. That’s good for us. But I don’t think we will see much in Arizona. He has raised what, $130 million in the last few months? He’s got a strong message out there. People want a fighter. They’re tired of the lying killer, um, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clintons of the world. We have vetted her for 30 years.”

Jan Brewer endorses Donald Trump

Brewer, 71, was governor of Arizona from 2009-2015. Her endorsement follows those of Maine Gov. Paul LePage and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie this week.

Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Saturday endorsed Donald Trump for president.

Trump has made immigration a central issue in his campaign for president, vowing to build a wall along the southern border of the United States and promising to have Mexico pay for it.

“For years I pleaded with the federal government to do their job and secure our border. Today, we can elect a President who will do just that — Donald J. Trump,” Brewer said in a statement released by Trump’s campaign.

Arizona Governor: I Will “Fight This Imperial President” for Abandoning the Border

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer recently took to Twitter to put the president on blast for not doing his job to secure the border, stating she would “fight this Imperial President” for neglecting to do his constitutional duty to protect the United States.

It didn’t seem possible for President Obama’s fan club to shrink any more than it already has due to the numerous scandals that keep rolling off the White House assembly line, but then the immigration crisis pops up and proves otherwise.

Obama is taking plenty of heat and criticism, all of it well deserved, for refusing to secure the southern border, and creating programs that encourage families to send their unaccompanied children into the country illegally.

It’s pretty obvious that the reason Obama and his cronies have decided not to take action is to intentionally create this crisis in order to force immigration reform through the use of an executive order, once again bypassing Congress and spitting on the Constitution.

While the president might think he’s clever, trying typical progressive tactics to force his will on the American people, not everyone is falling for the act.

Arizona Governor: Obama “Manufactured” the Border Crises

“Failing to acknowledge his own role in causing this border surge, the President is now threatening to look for ways to act unilaterally to implement his immigration agenda using executive fiat.” Governor Jan Brewer

Today, President Obama once again played politics and lectured Congress and the American people.

Instead of discussing what he is going to do immediately to address the illegal immigration crisis he manufactured, the President offered little more than the predictable rhetoric and blame shifting we have come to expect from this administration. Disturbingly, even though his role is to enforce laws passed by Congress, he once again threatens more executive actions to further thwart the will of Congress.

Rather than take action to secure our border, President Obama makes a hyper-partisan speech to complain that his liberal immigration bill, which would reward illegal aliens with a path to citizenship, has not passed the United States House of Representatives.

The illegal immigration crisis plaguing this country currently should be a wake-up call to all: elections have consequences! We are witnessing the terrible results of electing leaders who do not respect or follow the rule of law.

The lack of support for this bill should not be surprising. The fact remains that Americans demand a secure border. However, rather than heeding this message, the President has spent the past six years steadfastly and deliberately refusing to take any serious steps to truly secure the border.

Brewer to Congress: ‘Stop Obama’s manufactured crisis’

Arizona governor Tweets plea to secure border to Boehner, Reid.

After an earlier call to the White House to end its “dangerous” policy of dropping off hundreds of illegal immigrants apprehended in Texas in her own state, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer Thursday evening tweeted out a plea to congressional leadership to stop what she called a “crisis manufactured by President Obama.”

“Our country is in the midst of a crisis manufactured by President Obama and his administration’s refusal to enforce our nation’s immigration laws,” she wrote. “It has become clear that the administration has encouraged this massive influx and intends to continue ignoring the states’ calls to end this policy. Furthermore, it is indisputably evident that our border is not secure and is hardly “more secure than ever.”

On Monday she had blasted the federal government for not giving Arizona any notice of the plan to relocate thousands of refugees crossing the border, most of them children.

“I urge you to end this dangerous and unconscionable policy immediately and instead take actions to fulfill the federal government’s fundamental responsibility of protecting our homeland by securing our nation’s borders,” Brewer wrote in a letter to Obama.

Brewer said that the country and Arizona face “significant challenges” from the Obama administration’s “refusal to carry out its responsibility to secure our country’s southern border,” which has stretched state and local governments and law enforcement agencies “to the breaking point attempting to manage the enormity of these challenges.”

Sheriff Joe Mulls Run to Replace Retiring Brewer

He told Newsmax that he raised $3.5 million last year for a possible gubernatorial campaign and that he planned to release a position paper next week “that would show what I would do if I were the governor.”

Tough-talking Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio told Newsmax on Wednesday that he is considering a run for Arizona governor now that Jan Brewer has said that she would not seek a third term as the state’s top Republican after five years in office.

“If I’m ever going to do it, I should do it now,” Arpaio, 81, said in an exclusive interview. “I don’t want to wait until I’m 86 years old.

“If I’m going to do it, the only problem is that I have to resign as sheriff,” he added. “I have a lot of things going on, a lot of sensitive things going on.”

Arpaio declined to be more specific — only saying: “If I leave, it’s all going to be in vain. So I have to weigh that.”

The self-proclaimed “toughest sheriff in America,” Arpaio has held the job since 1993 and is known nationally for his strict treatment of jail inmates and for cracking down on illegal immigration.

ICE silent on release of 2,228 illegals

Refusing to disclose names, criminal histories of detainees.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials are still refusing to disclose the names, criminal histories and whereabouts of more than 2,200 detainees the agency suddenly released a year ago.

Citing public-safety concerns, an array of public officials have demanded that ICE turn over details about the detainees, more than 300 of whom were set free in Arizona.

The officials include Gov. Jan Brewer; Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu; Arizona’s U.S. senators, John McCain and Jeff Flake; and several other members of Congress.

Arizona Gov. to Obama: Our Borders Are Not Secure—They’re a “Nightmare”

As Michelle Malkin says, however, it shouldn’t be border security first—it should be secure the border, period.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is tired of the Obama administration asserting that the border is more secure than ever. In an interview with Politico, Brewer said “It’s Jay Leno comedy every other week,” referring to President Obama’s upcoming trip to Phoenix and California, where he’ll tape an interview with Leno.

Although Brewer said some areas in her state are relatively secure, she described Tucson as a “nightmare,” and noted that Arizona is the gateway.

“We don’t even know who is coming across. We don’t know how many times they’re coming back and forth, when they’re not counting the ones that are turned back around.

“Everybody that you talk to has different numbers: Border Patrol … Homeland Security … the sheriffs,” she added. “It’s the drug cartels that we live with … the drop houses, the extortion, the sex-slavery industry, the gangs fighting one another.”

The governor said “the frustration level has only increased” among Arizonans since she signed Senate Bill 1070 into law in 2010.

“How many times do people have to say, ‘secure our borders,’ and be rebuffed?” she said.
