Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer blasted the federal government for failing to secure the U.S.-Mexico border while invoking the names of a slain rancher and Border Patrol agent.
She spoke Tuesday to a room of law enforcement and those in the border technology industry at a major border-security expo being held in Phoenix.
Brewer told them that the immigration issue isn’t about prejudice but about securing the border and keeping Americans safe.
She says that no amount of distortion can hide the absolute truth — that Republicans and Democrats alike in Washington “have failed every single American.”
Brewer says that has resulted in overburdened emergency rooms, immigrant-related crime happening in Americans’ backyards and taxpayers having to foot the bill.

The Soyuz TMA-10M headed towards the International Space Station with crew members from Expedition 37 onboard.
40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
A pair of NanoRacks CubeSats -- nanosattelite spacecrafts carrying experiments -- were launched by Expedition 38.
