Brewer sends Barack Obama angry letter demanding that the influx of illegal’s from Texas be stopped immediately. Homeland Security flies immigrants to Arizona from Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, including more than 48,000 children, because the Border Patrol in South Texas is overwhelmed. U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement say the immigrants are mostly families fleeing extreme poverty and violence. Brewer spokesman Andrew Wilder says,
if President Obama would put in half the effort to securing out borders that they have put into this operation we would not be in this situation.
