Statement by Governor Jan Brewer


Location: Unknown

"I am disappointed with today's erroneous decision by the U.S. District Court to strike down a significant
public safety component of SB 1070.

"The provision, which would have prohibited day laborers from blocking traffic when seeking work on
public roadways, was put in place as a necessary traffic safety measure. Judge Bolton's ruling represents an
erosion of the State's ability to regulate public safety.

"This ruling provides yet another reason why I look forward to the Supreme Court providing guidance
on the constitutionality of SB 1070. I am confident that, when the case reaches the High Court in April, the
constitutionality of SB 1070 will be affirmed. I will continue to fight for this important law and for Arizona's right to defend itself and the well-being of its citizens."
