Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer tells exactly why she wants you to vote for Trump

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has added another governor to the Trump team.

Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, a staunch foe of illegal immigration, endorsed Trump on Saturday, joining forces with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in backing the real estate tycoon’s White House run.

In a press release, Brewer revealed why she made the choice:

Jan Brewer added, “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. As I’ve always said: A nation without borders is like a house without walls – it collapses. As Arizona’s Governor, I witnessed too much heartache, loss and suffering caused by illegal immigration. I’ve seen communities destroyed by the drugs, gangs, drop houses and cartels. The cost of health care, education and incarceration for illegal immigrants places a crushing burden on taxpayers. Workers of all backgrounds are deprived of jobs and income from our open, bleeding border.”

“For years I pleaded with the federal government to do their job and secure our border. 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.”

“As a Washington outsider, Mr. Trump gets it. He will listen to the people and fight for the citizens of the United States.”

Brewer added, “As Mr. Trump says: we either have a country, or we don’t. This may be our last chance to ensure our children grow up in a country with borders, and with a government that protects its own people. This is our chance – Donald Trump is our chance – to save this country and Make America Great Again.”


Brewer’s voice may have more influence with conservatives than Christie, as she is well-remembered for sticking her finger in President Barack Obama’s face during an intense exchange on the tarmac during a presidential visit to her state. Brewer was highly critical of Obama’s stance on immigration and the impact it had on Arizona.

The incident is still fresh on the minds of folks, including Obama fans:

The reaction to Brewer’s endorsement was mixed, with some praising her and others warning her that “once he builds a wall, you realize you have to live with him… inside of it.”
