FOX 10 news in Phoenix reported on the 4th Annual Strike Out Child Abuse Walk, which was led by Arizona Governor Brewer and Gov. Sarah Palin on Saturday.
Governor Jan Brewer and former Governor Sarah Palin led the Strike Out Child Abuse Walk as it wound its way through downtown Phoenix Saturday afternoon.
Before the event kicked off, people swarmed the former governor of Alaska for pictures and autographs.
Palin says she and her family spend a lot of time in Arizona. She pushed her son Trig in a stroller for the walk. “We get to visit here quite often because our kids take different classes down here. They’ve chosen Arizona as the place to be and it’s not just because of the weather, which is heavenly,” said Palin.
As for the political climate, we had to ask about the immigration issue. The gang of eight is expected to present a complex immigration plan next week.
Will the American people support it?
“If they first will make sure the borders are secure then I think American public will be open to hearing what bureaucratic regulatory solutions are, but first and foremost is securing the border,” said Palin.
“We need more boots on the ground, more technology on the ground and certainly we need cooperations between the state of Arizona and state of Sonora,” said Brewer.
And the inevitable question about Palin’s political future: Are you going to run in 2016?
“Don’t know what I’m going to do in 2016, but I’m going to walk today and I’m happy to get to do that,” said Palin.

“We’re here highlighting the problem of child abuse and doing all that we can to strike it out,” said Palin.
However, Saturday’s conversation wasn’t just about protecting our children. It was also about protecting our border.
This week immigrants living in this country illegally will likely find out what they need to do to become U.S. citizens. Lawmakers are days away from announcing details of the most sweeping immigration reform bill this country’s seen in a quarter century.
“There needs to be truth in this issue. The American public can’t keep being told that the border is as secure as ever or more secure than ever when that is not true,” said Palin.
Brewer and former Palin said they are anxious to see exactly what lawmakers in Washington have come up in regards to immigration reform.
The bill is expected to include details of a guest worker program as well as a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally. The proposal will also outline steps the federal government needs to take to secure the border. Both women agreed the border needs to be secured before any talk of amnesty.
“The ranchers and law enforcement on the border, when they say the border is secure then I think we can move forward,” said Brewer
