Governor of Arizona Jan Brewer in her new book on the controversial immigration law defends the law describing it as fair, effective and a necessary response to Washington turning a blind eye on border security.
The book titled “Scorpions For Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media And Cynical Politicos To Secure Americas Boder” offers behind the scene details of handling the bill and the administration’s efforts to crack down on illegal immigration while at the same time trying not be branded as racist.
In the book she criticizes the Obama administration making a controversy of the law which included mass protests, court challenges and boycotts of Arizona and says that they were serving their own agenda by mischaracterizing the provisions of the law in order to deflect attention from the weaknesses in border security.
The Obama administration sued the Governor to stop the law stating that federal jurisdiction over immigration pre-empted the Arizona law. A federal judge allowed some of the provisions while blocking out the others including the authority giving the police the right to question a person about his immigration status.
The book published by harper Collins will be on sale from November 1.
