Gov. Bredesen Signs SB1141/HB670 adding a greater deficit to the State of Tennessee budget

SB 1141/ HB 670 requires that every jailer in the state inspect the immigration documents of every person detained, with no specialized training, funding, oversight, or access to federal immigration databases.

The State of Tennessee will have an estimated deficit of 1 1/2 billion dollars in 2011; http://www.cbpp.org/cms/?fa=view&id=711

It is irresponsible for Governor Bredesen to continue to believe that incarceration of immigrants and US Citizens is fiscally possible. The next governor will have to deal with the mess that Bredesen has left behind.

It is hard to believe; Govenor Jan Brewer claim re her father death

Part of the comic relief of the 2010 election is turning out to be politician war fibs. And what's more entertaining isn't so much the shamelessness but the variety and creativity. Now we have embattled and adored Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer who told the Arizona Republic that her dad "died fighting the Nazi regime in Germany."

Only he died in California in 1955.
