Arizona Governor Brewer Endorses Handel

Say's Karen is the One to Pass AZ Style Illegal Immigration Law in Georgia

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer today announced her endorsement of former Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel to be Georgia's next Governor. Governor Brewer recently pushed through a tough new immigration law in her state and is now preparing to battle an Obama Justice Department legal challenge to that law.

In her endorsement, Governor Brewer said:

"As a former Secretary of State, I know how that office prepares you to be Governor. I've had to make tough choices. When Congress failed to act on illegal immigration, I took action to solve the problem. Now I'm taking on the Obama Administration as they try to stop us. I know Karen Handel. She has the experience, courage and tenacity that make her the best candidate to be Governor. Karen will fight to pass similar illegal immigration laws in Georgia. If President Obama tries to stop her, she will tell him to 'Bring it On.'"

"I am humbled and excited by Governor Brewer's support," Karen said today. "She has become an inspiration to conservatives and represents the new kind of leadership that we need across the country. She stood firm and pushed forward with the nation's toughest law to fight illegal immigration and she'll stand firm against the Obama Administration too. She also made the hard decisions and cut Arizona's budget to align with today's economic realities. She is a conservative hero and I thank her for her strong support and friendship."

Handel noted that she is the only candidate for Governor who has actually implemented programs to fight illegal immigration in Georgia. As Secretary of State, she launched the use of the federal SAVE database to verify the immigration status of applicants for professional licenses. She also initiated Georgia's voter verification system that includes citizenship verification for newly registered voters and has fought her own battle with the Obama Justice Department.

"There is a difference between executive experience and legislative experience: career legislators – whether in Georgia or in Congress -- seem to think that casting a vote, sponsoring legislation or sending out a press release is all that counts," Karen said. "Well, what really counts is delivering results. That's leadership, and the people of Georgia know the difference."

I hope that every American, regardless of where he lives, will stop and examine his conscience about this and other related incidents. This Nation was founded by men of many nations and backgrounds. It was founded on the principle that all men are created equal, and that the rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened. All of us ought to have the right to be treated as he would wish to be treated, as one would wish his children to be treated, but this is not the case.

I know the proponents of this law say that the majority approves of this law, but the majority is not always right. Would women or non-whites have the vote if we listen to the majority of the day, would the non-whites have equal rights (and equal access to churches, housing, restaurants, hotels, retail stores, schools, colleges and yes water fountains) if we listen to the majority of the day? We all know the answer, a resounding, NO!

Today we are committed to a worldwide struggle to promote and protect the rights of all who wish to be free. In a time of domestic crisis men of good will and generosity should be able to unite regardless of party or politics and do what is right, not what is just popular with the majority. Some men comprehend discrimination by never have experiencing it in their lives, but the majority will only understand after it happens to them.
