“…will actually enforce the rule of law.”
Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who was one of the nation’s most strident and stirring voices in the fight against illegal immigration, endorsed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump Saturday in a call to arms to save America.
“This may be our last chance to ensure our children grow up in a country with borders, and with a government that protects its own people. This is our chance – Donald Trump is our chance – to save this country and Make America Great Again,” said Brewer, a Republican who served as governor from 2009-2015.
“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. Mr. Trump will secure our borders, defend our workers and protect our sovereignty. Mr. Trump will stand for our law enforcement, our police and our immigration officers. Mr. Trump will actually enforce the rule of law,” Brewer said in a statement.
“Mr. Trump gets it. He will listen to the people and fight for the citizens of the United States,” she said, hailing Trump as a “Washington outsider.”
“Arizona’s unsecured border is the gateway of illegal immigration into the United States and the politicians in Washington D.C. have continually failed to secure our border. As I’ve always said: A nation without borders is like a house without walls – it collapses. As Arizona’s Governor, I witnessed too much heartache, loss and suffering caused by illegal immigration.
“I’ve seen communities destroyed by the drugs, gangs, drop houses and cartels. The cost of health care, education and incarceration for illegal immigrants places a crushing burden on taxpayers. Workers of all backgrounds are deprived of jobs and income from our open, bleeding border.”
