Brewer and Palin blamed President Barack Obama for the state law, saying the measure is Arizona’s attempt to enforce immigration laws because the federal government won’t do it.

“It’s time for Americans across this great country to stand up and say, ‘We’re all Arizonans now,”‘ Palin said. “And in clear unison we say, ‘Mr. President: Do your job. Secure our border.'”…

Obama and foreign governments have condemned the law, which critics say will lead to racial profiling of Hispanics. Brewer on Saturday reiterated her assertion that profiling is illegal and will not be tolerated.

“Our president apparently considers it a wonderful opportunity to divide people along racial lines for his personal political convenience,” Brewer said.
