Former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer endorses Donald Trump for president.

Donald Trump has gained another weapon in his ever-growing arsenal.

Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has endorsed the businessman on his venture toward the White House, and says that Trump will help secure the state’s borders.

“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,” Brewer stated in a press release. “As I’ve always said: A nation without borders is like a house without walls — it collapses.”

Luckily for Brewer, if Trump is elected president, he’ll make sure this nation’s house won’t collapse with its first wall at the Arizona-Mexico border.

“For years I pleaded with the federal government to do their jobs and secure our border,” Brewer added. “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’s endorsement adds to Trump’s already key support group from Arizona including Sheriff Joe Arpaio and State Treasurer Jeff DeWit.

Trump’s burning desire to eradicate the immigration concerns facing the United States has shown dividends in his pursuit for the presidency.

“I love the state of Arizona and have received incredible support throughout the state,” Trump said. “I am leading in all the polls and we have had amazing events with tremendous crowds. I am honored to receive this endorsement from Governor Brewer.”

Trump enters Super Tuesday as the favorite among the Republican candidates to move closer to winning the GOP nomination.
