The Arizona Republic alleges that the governor of the state of Arizona (aka Jan Brewer) is the “commander in chief” of the Arizona National Guard, “more than 9,100 personnel.” The governor then appoints an adjutant general to command the Arizona forces? The Republic claims that the National Guard is responsible to “serve their respective states in crime-fighting, border security.” How can this be? In light of all of Gov. Brewer’s tough talk over border security and illegal aliens, and all the brouhaha around the 10th Amendment aside, has our governor had the solution all along, and failed to act? If the rationale for Brewer and the Republican Arizona Legislature’s antics, for many years, is that the federal government has failed to act — and so Arizona must — and in light of constant rhetoric about the crisis and emergency along our border, either Brewer or the Republic needs to explain.
