Cover includes the name of the Secretary of State at time of issue. Krentz and his dog, Blue, had been missing since that morning. They were last heard from when he radioed his brother to say that he'd found an illegal alien on the property and was going to offer him assistance. The man Krentz encountered that day shot and killed him and his dog, without warning, before escaping to Mexico. It's difficult to overstate the impact of Krentz's death, which turned the issue of Arizona's unsecured border'a crisis that the federal government had repeatedly ignored'into a national concern. As Arizona sheriff Larry Dever said in his testimony before the Senate Homeland Security Committee, "We cannot sit by while our citizens are terrorized, robbed, and murdered by ruthless and desperate people who enter our country illegally.
With the passage of this controversial bill, the state of Arizona became ground zero in the impassioned debate over illegal immigration. The Democrats and the media went into overdrive, denouncing the state and its governor as racists and Nazis. Governor Brewer, a lifelong Arizona resident with deep ties to the community, was first elected to the Arizona House of Representatives in , and hasn't lost an election since. As a state official, she watched with increasing dismay as illegal immigration exploded across Arizona's border, and noticed the devastating effect it was having on the state.
I would have no problem with that Ohhhhhhh, I had no idea governors were so busy they worked 16 hours a day signing bills and stuff. Thank you ParentX for clarifying this for me.

Do ya think they even get weekends off? Man, it must be tough working all those hours sitting at a desk signing bill after bill, and wearing the thinking cap trying to think of ways to work harder at sitting at a desk. Do you have any idea what politicians do most of the time at their office? Like putting makeup on and having her hair done? Writing an important book is vanity?
None of you detractors have anything of substance just insults and derogatory suggestions. Get a life and maybe you too can have something to write about. How the heck does Governor Brewer have so much free time right now that she can be writing a book?!? I'm all for elected leaders taking vacation time and trying to keep sane hours say, hours a week , but I do NOT appreciate our Governor working on vanity projects on the side while our state is experiencing so many monumental issues. If you are fortunate enough to be elected to the office of the Governor, you better be keeping your eye on the ball.
Ghost writer or not, this book is simply one more bit of grandstanding that detracts from the greater needs of our state. Hotcopone, How would you know what she will do with the money generated by the book? Perhaps she will donate some to the building of the fence. SB is still pretty well funded with private donations though. Eating sour grapes sure is fun huh? Did you read the article LinMesa? If you had actually read the article you would know she hired a ghost writer to help he write the book cause she stated so quite plainly.
No, I didn't think so. Your not that smart.
If she had used all the time she has wasted blaming President Obama for everything that happens she could have finished the book a long time ago. And are we really to believe she is the one actually writing it??? I don't think so. She isn't that smart. I've been following the border developments regarding Mrs.
It's atrocious what Obama is doing to us. I sympathize with Brewer and Babeu. I do think, however, Obama is on the way out and I genuinely hope and beyond will return us to a government of the people by the people and for the people.
I don't understand why she isn't donating all the profits from the book towards either the SB fund or the new Border Security fence that we are going to build with private funds. I always hear her asking for help.. Now it's her turn in my opinion She's looking for a money grab.. I thought everything was Bush's fault. Good for you Jan I hope it isn't your last book too.

I would recommend this book to women in particular In this book, former Governor Jan Brewer discusses what she went through during the authoring and signing of SB You'll be able to see the issue from her perspective and the emotional turmoil that she went through during that time. It's actually a depressing story, but I found myself respecting her more after seeing how nasty and ignorant her opponents were.
It's well written, informative, and has several pictures that speak for themselves. The 1 star reviews are obviously from weak-minded individuals who didn't read this book, refuse to give it a chance, nor read or understood SB Sadly, they are the ones that should read the book so they can get informed. One person found this helpful. I believe she is a true patriot who's dedicated to serving her constituents, and all citizens of AZ. Definitely a Lady of Class and one who cares. So sorry Jan gave up the Governorship in Arizona.
