Thank You Gov. Jan Brewer AZ

Not very often am I proud of our politicians in what they do or say but today....
Our Governor Jan Brewer signed SB1070 (Immigration Bill)
I listened to her speech - it was very well written. I never really knew how I felt about her until today. I'm sure you will hear about this on the news tonight. Our 12 news team broad casted it - the news team and all the people they interviewed were against it. That channel always is one sided. They had a protest outside our capitol building - it was made up of 85% kids that had ditched school. The kids threw their water bottles at the police and one of the pro-SB 1070 person standing outside the capitol too.
I keep my opinions reserved on my blog but today ..... Thank You Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona!
She did not give in to the protests and did what is right for our wonderful State of Arizona :)

Excellent - a politician who does what is right, even in the face of opposition. Wow, that's rare these days.

The whole immigration issue is building to a head of trouble I think. Here in Texas, we have problems, too, though not as much as it seems AZ has been having. It is long past time for us to do something about it. Kudos to your governor for standing up!

oh the politicians don't like it when someone stands up for what's right...she did a great job...and didn't buckle under the pressure...sounds like your government in Azizona is trying to do what's best for the people...not for Washington...great post...

I heard about this a LOT today. I was driving and listening to talk radio and boy oh boy were they talking about it.

Tim James is running for governor of Alabama and he said that we didn't need to give our state driver's license test in twelve different languages - just English. It has created a bit of a fire storm here and drawn national media attention. I wonder if it would have garnered the attention if it weren't for the AZ legislation.

Have a wonderful day Deedee!
