Obama to meet with Arizona gov. over immigration law

President Barack Obama will meet with Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) on Thursday to discuss the controversial immigration law she signed in April, according to multiple reports.

Brewer signed the law, saying the federal government has not done enough to secure the southern border, which has seen violence and drug cartel activity spill over into the United States this year.

The law requires state law enforcement officials to check the papers of people they suspect are in the country illegally, as long as they were stopped for other reasons.

Obama, however, has called the law "misguided," since critics of the law believe it will likely lead to racial profiling of Latinos. The Obama administration has said it has put time and resources into securing the border.

The president said his administration is looking at the law to judge its impact on civil rights.
