Brewer on Border Briefing: "No Really Substantial Information"

Posted By on Tue, Jun 29, 2010 at 10:55 AM

Jeremy Duda of the Arizona Capitol Times brings us Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's reaction to a briefing from the federal government on border security:


The National Guard deployment was less than Brewer expected after a June 3 meeting at the White House with Obama, when the president told the governor that Arizona would get the majority of a planned 1,200-troop deployment. Brewer said she did not think the 524 troops were enough to secure the border.

“Certainly what we heard wasn’t anything of what we had hoped to hear from them,” Brewer told reporters in the eighth-floor lobby of the executive tower. “No really substantial information was provided that would make us happy or pleased with the discussions.”

Goddard, on the other hand, said the 524 National Guard troops was only a first step meant to provide temporary relief while the federal government formulates a larger border security plan.

“This is not the end of the game. This is just the beginning. This is a number that is meant to provide some stopgap relief. They made it very clear this is not the end of the show,” Goddard said.
