Arizona Senate President says Obama is acting like a ‘spoiled child’

Jun 25, 2012, 5:00 PM | Updated: 5:01 pm

Arizona’s Senate President Steve Pierce had strong
words
about President Barack Obama after 287(g) was suspended between the
government and many Arizona law enforcement agencies.

“Acting more like a spoiled child than a
President, the Obama administration today pulled the
agreement to have Arizona law enforcement officers enforce
federal laws on illegal immigration.

These are agreements used across the country to protect
citizens, but President Obama and his accomplice, Homeland
Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, only ripped up the
agreement with one state, Arizona.

It doesn’t take much to connect the dots. The
administration made this move hours after losing at the
U.S. Supreme Court, when justices unanimously upheld the
key part to SB 1070.

This reckless decision by the Obama administration lays
bare its real focus. Instead of making the safety of
Americans a priority, the administration is all about
politics, hoping to score points with certain
communities.”

Governor Jan Brewer was displeased by the decision as well
as her statement led with “President Obama once again abandons citizens
of Arizona.”
