Jan Brewer Unveils New Plan to Get Rid of Illegal Immigrants (Not Really)
OK, so that's not really Governor Jan Brewer explaining her new method of getting rid of illegal immigrants, but it's hilarious.
GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and ousted state Senate President Russell Pearce have both expressed support for the idea of "self-deportation," so why not Brewer?
After deciding to issue an executive order to ban immigrants participating in the Obama administration's deferred-action program from receiving driver's licenses and other public benefits, Brewer kind of had to answer why she's taking it out on the kids who were brought to the United States illegally, but through no fault of her own.
According to the Associated Press, Brewer said, "It is their parents' responsibility. They need to follow the law."
Well, at least you can enjoy the comic relief above.
