Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger joked that he was afraid of being deported in Arizona during a commencement speech he delivered Monday at Emory University in Atlanta.
"I was also going to give a graduation speech in Arizona this weekend," Schwarzenegger said. "But with my accent I was afraid they would try to deport me."
The Republican governor is opposed to Arizona's new immigration law and said last month, "I would never do that in California." Schwarzenegger has blamed the federal government for not securing the border. link
If he "blames" the feds for not securing the border, what specifically about Arizona's law, which mostly restates federal law, does the governor object to?
Elected officials aren't supposed to act this way. Did he think it funny when people in other states proposed boycotts of California over Proposition 8?
