Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is reportedly writing a tell-all memoir about her state’s controversial immigration bill that she signed into law last year, according to reports from her publisher.
The book, titled “Scorpions For Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media and Cynical Politicos to Secure America’s Border,” is set to be released in November. In it, Brewer will pen her account of the turmoil surrounding the immigration legislation, known as SB 1070, which aimed at driving almost 500,000 illegal immigrants out of the state and toughened security to prevent smuggling over the Mexico border.
The bill also required police to investigate the immigration status of anyone they detained and suspected of being an undocumented, although key provisions of the bill were blocked by a federal judge, who said it promotes racial profiling by police.
In a statement, Brewer said the book will, “will describe [her] ongoing fight to provide security for our citizens and to defeat those who profit and grow more powerful by refusing to secure our borders.”
Brewer is currently planning on petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court to lift a federal court’s preliminary injunction that blocked major parts of SB 1070. In April, a circuit court ruled that the Justice Department would likely find the bill unconstitutional and that only the federal government has the authority to enforce immigration laws.
