In unity we say, “Mr. President, do your job. Secure our border.”

“This state has enacted a law. It mirrors the federal law which allows police to ask those they otherwise have stopped to provide a driver’s license or other verification of legal presence. I think for most American people, there reaction to this would be, “Oh, why haven’t the police already been doing that?” (applause) And, while Mexico’s president has began to crack down on the violent drug cartels and corruption in his own country, it’s time for the United States Government to enforce the rule of law as well… In unity we say, “Mr. President, do your job. Secure our border.”
And a final word to the boycott crowd and to the majority of Americans who support Governor Brewer’s stand. It you really want border security. If you want to halt the human rights abuses that have resulted from our failed border security policy, Come visit Arizona. You can say that here they are doing the job that our federal government will not do. (applause)
