Obama Against America
Aiding Mexican Invasion of Arizona
Fox and Friends -- April 29  
Gretchen Carlson, Fox and Friends: Jan Brewer said Janet Napolitano knows exactly what's going on in Arizona and now she's not paying attention to it. Listen to this.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer: She obviously is turning a blind eye to Arizona. She understands the situation here. She wrote numerous letters when she was governor to the administration looking for help and some relief and for her to make the comment that she made that that the border are – what was it – that the borders are just as secure or more secure than they have ever been. Well, they have never been secure.
Brian Kilmeade, Fox and Friends: So Napolitano knows what's going on but Brewer is the one taking action. What's the story behind this?
Michelle Malkin: Well Brian, it's worse than turning a blind eye. In fact, what Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder, both DHS and DOJ in the Obama administration are doing is actively meddling to prevent Arizona from enforcing its law. It's not just Jan Brewer and this particular law that have been targets. Of course, Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Maricopa County has been the subject of a witch-hunt, essentially, by Obama law enforcement officers for doing the job, again, that the feds will not do.
