PHOENIX – Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has announced the state will sue the federal government for its failure to secure the border and enforce immigration laws.
Brewer and Attorney General Tom Horne held a news conference Thursday to announce their fight in the face of a federal judge’s ruling that parts of SB1070, the state’s controversial immigration law, are unconstitutional.
The announcement came four days after Brewer signed into law a bill that would let legislativeleaders participate in efforts to defend the enforcement law against court challenges.
