Brewer is ready to go to court to fight team Obama
Bring it on.
That’s the attitude Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is taking toward the possibility that the Obama administration could file a legal challenge to her state’s immigration law.
“We’ll meet you in court,” she said in an interview Tuesday. “I have a pretty good record of winning in court.”
Attorney General Eric Holder has said the Department of Justice may challenge the law, which President Obama has called “misguided.” Brewer has staunchly defended the policy — which makes illegal immigration a state crime — and is expected to meet with the president Thursday, a White House official told FoxNews.com.
The White House confirmed the meeting following criticism over reports that Obama would not be able to meet with her while she is in Washington this week. Brewer is in Washington for a meeting with nine other governors appointed by Obama to deal with homeland security issues — she attended that meeting Wednesday morning.
