President Obama met with Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona today to discuss immigration and border security. While Obama and Brewer are in sharp disagreement with regards to the immigration bill (SB 1070) she recently signed into law, the Gov. indicated that their meeting was cordial. However, President Obama refused to discuss whether or not the Justice Department would file a lawsuit to block the laws before they take effect next month.

During the meeting, the President promised to send White House staffers to Arizona to discuss efforts to secure the U.S./Mexico border. Obama indicated he would like to work with Brewer in an effort to pass comprehensive immigration reform that would provide amnesty for undocumented immigrants already in the country.

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
