PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says she wants to meet with President Barack Obama about border security and immigration while in Washington next week.

The White House responds by saying Obama's schedule "doesn't allow for a meeting" with Brewer, but spokesman Adam Abrams adds that Obama "does intend to sit down with the governor in the future."

Brewer had said Friday she asked to meet with Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano while in Washington next week to meet with other governors.

She also criticized the administration, saying the country's borders still aren't secure and that the federal government should be moving quicker to do more to change that.

Abrams didn't respond to a request for comment on that.
