Former Arizona governor Jan Brewer endorses Trump

by Dan Nowicki  |  published on February 28, 2016

The former Arizona governor who famously wagged her finger at President Obama and who signed the state’s controversial 2010 immigration law on Saturday endorsed Donald Trump in the Republican presidential race.

“For years I pleaded with the federal government to do their job and secure our border,” Jan Brewer, who left office in early 2015, said in a written statement released Saturday by Trump’s campaign. “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,” Brewer added. “He will listen to the people and fight for the citizens of the United States.”

Trump, the Republican front-runner, has made stopping unauthorized immigration a centerpiece of his campaign. His fiery rhetoric has included calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” and drug runners, and he has vowed to build a wall along the Southern border and force Mexico to pay for it.

Trump also has been endorsed by another controversial Arizona border hard-liner, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Arpaio’s Sheriff’s Office was found by a federal judge to have racially profiled Latinos during enforcement activities.

    why would you bring up a communist judge’s ruling against Arpaio? unless you have a sneaky agenda—why didn’t you comment on all the times the Sheriff has helped our Mexican citizens that live there and have to deal with the illegals every day—uh why don’t you do that? do you have some kind of bias agenda at work here?

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Gov. Brewer, Duncan Hunter, Chris Christie, Jerry Falwell Jr. Sarah Palin, & more all have endorced Trump, they KNOW he gets things done, not just talk, & isn’t beholden to ANY Special Interests, just the American People.

      He will have to throw a bone to this group it not always money.

      • Luke

        Of course he will but it won’t be the tax payers money in boondoggles and special favors to make them rich, just do what they want, it’s the same thing we want..

          This is exactly what I have been saying since Donald Trump even hinted at running for President,, He Cannot Be Bought! He just has the Common Sense that True Americans Have & He Loves America the way we do!!! The fact that he is in a position to do something about fixing this Horrific Mess that the Tyrant in Our White House has purposely done to us Should Excite Every American.

        Like what? They support Trump because he will accomplish what they have been trying to accomplish for DECADES.

        • DOC

          Fancy word for sucking up. No body know what this guy will do. He has just as many failures as success.

          • paulyz

            That was a completely false statement.

          • DOC

            4 bankrupes 2 marriages and there is more. All his dirt will come out. You can’t do all he has done and be squick clean. But follow who ever you want but don’t act like Trump is all holy and clean.

          • paulyz

            Thousands have been attacking Trump relentlessly, all the so called dirt wasn’t there, now just desperate nonsense, while Trump grows more popular.

          • DOC

            What I wrote has been there. He was in bed Clinton, Rummey. Now he changed.

          • paulyz

            I doubt any person, especially politicians, is holy & clean. But at least Trump isn’t a politician, & has decades of understanding the economy & creating jobs. We need forceful leaders as Presidents, but also real life experience, especially Executive experience, since the President is the Executive Branch.

          • DOC

            You like to say Trump is going to be forceful leader, build a military so large no country will attack us if you remember that is what bought down Russia down maintaining a over large military. Tell were are you going to get the young bodies to fight are you talking draft? Trump is a business man when he don’t get his way he sues. He went to a military school and acts like he was in the Army. If you like the guy no problem that is what America is all about.

          • paulyz

            DRAFT?? We have an all-voluntary Military! But the way Obama & the Democrat-Socialists have demoralized the Military by his obvious dislike of it, making it possible that Americans may not volunteer in the future…….But the President is the Executive Branch and Trump is a very successful Executive to carry out the necessary functions of the Federal Government, not be involved in every facet of our lives!

          • DOC

            First to build a army cost money that means taxes next you as president can’t just start a draft. All this goes to Congress. Now is you Trump going to be a dictator?

          • paulyz

            NO, Trump will not be a dictator, we have one now with Obama, why voters by the Millions are voting for Trump.

          • DOC

            It is for sure you do not know what a dictator is. If Obama was a dictator there be no congress or senate so please stop reading whatever your reading. What is Trump do when the congress don’t do what he wants SUE them?

          • paulyz

            I believe it is you labeling people dictators.

          • DOC

            You called Obama a dictator.I said Trump would have to be a dictator to do all the things he wants to do. Don’t get it twisted.

    • blueslide

      AMEN !!!
      I still cannot believe that there are people saying that TRUMP has not done anything for the Veterans.?. My gawd do they just make this crap up or what?

      • Phyllis

        Yes they do make it up.

    • le3845

      I’m with you Dennis. TRUMP 2016!!!! What they won’t try to throw at him. Yes, he has changed parties and has changed his opinions in the last few years. He may have some skeletons in his closet as most everyone does-no one is perfect. I’m a mix of liberal and conservative but have always been a Republican. I’m embarrassed by what the Republican party has done to let us down and it’s time an outsider came in and cleaned house. They are running scared. Look up some of Rubio’s and Cruz’s past and you may find some skeletons too.

      • Phyllis

        I agree with you. As for Dukes and the KKK, even they have a right to vote, along with those they perceive as their enemies.

    • Cindi

      I have always loved Jan Brewer. I am from maryland but have family in Arizona so I always followed her and also Sheriff Joe a great man with the right ideas. Everyone knows that these are the kind of people we need in washington. GO TRUMP 2016!!!


    Former Governor Brewer and Sheriff Joe have been fighting for sealed borders for years. Trump will do just that! The others, not so much!
    Trump 2016!!!
