Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has come under fire from the left for signing her state’s controversial immigration bill into law. But she told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly today that people outside the state don’t really understand the issue: Arizona has been under “terrorist attacks” from illegal immigration.“You know Arizona has been under terrorist attacks, if you will, with all of this illegal immigration that has been taking place on our very, very porous border,” Brewer said.
She said the federal government had not stepped up, and Arizona was forced to bear the crime and “decimation of our countryside.”
“We do not and will not tolerate illegal immigration — bringing with it very much so the implications of crime and terrorism into our state,” Brewer said.
