As calls spread for an economic boycott of Arizona, embattled Gov. Jan Brewer enlisted the help of none other than Sarah Palin yesterday to defend its controversial immigration crackdown. Brewer and Palin blamed President Obama for the state law, saying the measure is Arizona's attempt to enforce immigration laws because the federal government won't do it.

"It's time for Americans across this great country to stand up and say, 'We're all Arizonans now,'" Palin said. "And in clear unison we say, 'Mr. President: Do your job. Secure our border.'" The event launched a website that Brewer said was an effort to educate America about border security and discourage an economic boycott of the state. (More Sarah Palin stories.)
