On Illegal Immigration..Governor Brewer Personalizes The Debate

The owner of the Phoenix Suns basketball team, Robert Sarver, is on record as vocally opposing Arizona's new immigration laws and supporting the repeal of SB 1070,

Arizona 's Governor, Jan Brewer, released the following statement in response to Sarver's criticism of the new law:

"What if the owners of the Suns discovered that hordes of people were
sneaking into games without paying? What if they had a good idea who the
gate-crashers are, but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed to
ask these folks to produce their ticket stubs, thus non-paying attendees
couldn't be ejected?

Furthermore, what if Suns' ownership was expected to
provide those who sneaked in with complimentary eats and drink?

And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured, the Suns had to provide free medical care and shelter?"

- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer

I'd love to see Sarver's response to this, wouldn't you?

i would think sarver will say that a private business operates one way and gov't operates another.
he is fulfilling his responsibility as a private business and paying his, and his teams, taxes so that the gov't can fulfill their responsibility.
i bet he pays a staff more money than i make in a year to minimize his tax level all the while milking the phoenix taxpayers to support the arena his team plays in. either by usage/activity fees or admission.
