Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) plans to turn down Sen. Charles Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) request to testify on Arizona’s controversial immigration law before Congress, her spokesman said Friday.
The spokesman, Matthew Benson, told The Hill that the timing of the hearing gave it “every mark of a publicity stunt.”
Benson blamed congressional inaction for the necessity of the Arizona law. He said he doubted the merits of the planned hearing and that Brewer has better things to do because the Supreme Court will hear the case that same week.
