PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says she’s pleased that a group of U.S.
Senators, including Arizona’s John McCain and Jeff Flake, say immigration reform
will not succeed without effective border security.
In a statement, Brewer said she’ll review specific details of the immigration
reform plan when the actual legislation is proposed. In the meantime, she says
she’ll continue to talk to people “on the front lines” and make sure their
voices are heard.
Arizona Democratic Congressman Raul Grijalva says the proposal puts “the wind
at the back” of those seeking comprehensive immigration reform. But he
questions the proposal’s emphasis on securing the border and enforcement.
The Tucson Democrat says border governors would get too much power to determine
when illegal immigrants would get provisional visas.
