Gov. Jan Brewer: I Feel Positive That We’ll Get a Good Ruling From Supreme Court on Arizona Immigration Law
Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments about Arizona’s controversial immigration law. Governor Jan Brewer, who has been at the forefront of the fight over this law from the very beginning joined America’s Newsroom this morning.
While Brewer said she felt that yesterday was a “great” day in court, she maintained that she wanted to remain cautious and not take anything for granted.

Brewer reacted specifically to Chief Justice Robert’s remarks that “It’s not an effort to enforce federal law … It is an effort to let you know about violations of federal law. Whether or not to enforce them is still entirely up to you … It seems to me that the federal government just doesn’t want to know who is here illegally or not.” Brewer said, “I think that’s what we’ve been trying to say all along, and of course, the justice may have said it a lot better than I’ve been saying it. But we just want to work together with the federal government … to use our law enforcement and our resources to help them.”
She concluded, “I just feel really positive that we’re going to get a good ruling from the Supreme Court.”
