Whether Jerry brown was firm or conflicted in his controversial legislative decisions last night was unclear but may be swayed by news he received this morning.
Jan brewer, Arizona's governor notorious for her signing of the state's racial profiling bill, SB1070, issued Brown honorary residence in her state. "Anyone who can manage to deny basic protections to domestic workers, farm workers, and entire immigrant families, all in one night, is bound to need some friends," explained Brewer. "I want him to know, Jerr, you've got a friend in me."
Many Californians awoke reporting a mix of both confusion and disappointment in their governor. Juan Castillo, a Central Valley student questioned, "It was dreamers and the immigrant community who got Brown elected. Did he forget that or just not care?"
An embarrassing but revealing moment may shed some light when Arizona's Brewer amplified on a mic that had yet to be turned off post-official announcement. She was heard saying, "I mean... I got elected by making up beheadings in the desert. I gotta give it to him... To be able to pull off that fearmongering and still be positioned as a friend to the immigrants. I tip my hat to him on this one."
Sheriff Arpaio also caused a stir with a twitter exchange between himself and Los Angeles' Sheriff Lee Baca. "@LeeBaca glad to see civil rites won't be getting in yr way. Keep up the good work." Baca in what he thought was a private message made public when Arpaio retweeted it responded, "Thanks Joe. Aiming to hit 30k this year. YOLO," referring to the level of deportations in Los Angeles under the federal Secure Communities program, the highest in the country.
As of publication Governor Brown was unable to comment on whether or not he would accept Brewer's offer. However, for many in the Golden State, his decision to veto the TRUST Act, domestic worker bill of rights, and the Farmworkers bill already places Brown squarely in Brewer's ranks.
