The Univision Network announced today it will air an exclusive Spanish-language interview with controversial Arizona Governor Jan Brewer since she signed the much-debated SB1070 immigration law. “Noticiero Univision” (Univision News) anchor Jorge Ramos sits down with Governor Brewer to discuss her decision to sign the law and the subsequent legal battle that fueled a heated national debate on border security and immigration reform. Ramos also asks the governor whether she supports the actions of Maricopa County’s controversial Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was recently sued by the Department of Justice for allegedly refusing to fully cooperate in a federal investigation of his department for accusations on racial profiling. Governor Brewer discusses these topics and shares her vision for the future of Arizona and its role in shaping immigration reform in the U.S. as she seeks election in November.

Illegal immigration doesn't have anything to do with human rights. This is about breaking the law and we're a nation of laws.”
When asked about what to do with the 11 million undocumented
immigrants currently in this country Governor Brewer admitted she had
“I have no idea, I have no idea. I don't have that solution. I'm taking it one day at a time, but in the meantime I know that Texas and California got their borders secure. I know now that Arizona is the quarter for illegal immigration and drug cartels, we are the gateway and the people in Arizona should not have to bear that burden or feel unsafe in their homes down south of Arizona.”
