Hat tip to the Register’s TotalBuzz blog for news that controversial Arizona Governor Jan Brewer will be in Irvine tonight for a book signing at the Barnes & Noble in the Irvine Marketplace off Jamboree. The line starts forming at 6PM and the book is all red meat for the right wing conserverati and her fight to build a wall between Arizona and Mexico.
With downtown Santa Ana a short 15 minute drive away, we have to wonder if Mexican-Americans and Dream Act supporters will make the drive to Irvine to tell the Governor where she can stick SB1070, the state’s controversial law that targets undocumented immigrants.
From the Total Buzz piece:
“The book is called, “Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America’s Border.”
Brewer may be best known for signing into law SB 1070, a controversial measure that makes it a misdemeanor for an illegal immigrant to be in Arizona without carrying registration documents required by federal law, authorizes state and local law enforcement of federal immigration laws, and cracks down on those sheltering, hiring and transporting illegal immigrants.”
There hasn’t been a lot of advance word of the Governor’s appearance, but still, we’d hope that such an easily accessible public forum might give way to some sort of organized protest. No word on any such event.
