Arizona Governor Jan Brewer
Brewer disappointed by meeting with feds
    Gov. Jan Brewer said federal officials offered little of consequence and promised even less in a highly anticipated meeting to discuss Arizona' s border security issues.
    Brewer and Attorney General Terry Goddard, who met separately with a handful of federal officials on June 28, painted starkly differing pictures of the federal government' s plans for securing Arizona' s border with Mexico.
    John Brennan, a homeland security and counterterrorism advisor to President Barack Obama, pledged in his meeting with the governor to deploy 524 National Guard troops to the border in the next two months, reinforce 22 miles of preexisting fencing and ask Congress for $600 million to hire 1,000 more Border Patrol agents and 300 Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, Brewer said. [...]
    The governor was especially displeased that the White House is providing $310 million for anti-border crime efforts in Mexico while appropriating only $135 million for National Guard deployments in the United States.
