Brewer asking courts to review 1070 decision

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Governor Brewer is calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to review a lower courts decision that blocked parts of the state's controversial immigration law.

Brewer filed a petition today with the nation's high court.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Rejected Governor Brewer's first attempt to throw out a district court's decision.

The governor says she's committed to defending SB 1070 and protecting Arizona's citizens.
