Brewer is outraged that DHS monies will be used to track Jaguars, instead of focusing on illegal immigration.
A Facebook posting today from Governor Jan Brewer read, "I learned today that the Department of Homeland Security is spending $771,000 to put up cameras in our desert to track......jaguars! The study will evaluate what impact that the U.S.-Mexican border fence, illegal aliens, and vehicles and equipment used to pursue illegal aliens have had on the jaguar population."
"Click "like" if you agree with me and think this is outrageous!" Brewer continued. "We need to secure our border..."
It's a true report, according to AZStarNet.com. "Starting next year, jaguars will be the target of an extensive network of remote cameras placed across Southern Arizona and southwest New Mexico."
One hundred and twenty locations will have two cameras set up for the three-year study aimed at learning the habits and movements of jaguars along the US-Mexican border.
Brewer explains that it is issues like this that led her to start her political fund titled, Jan PAC. She is offering a free, signed copy of her book, Scorpions for Breakfast to anyone who contributes $100 or more.
Jaguars have been listed as endangered in the United States for fifteen years.
