Brewer April Fools' Day joke: Obama to tour border

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Gov. Jan Brewer has put the politics in April Fools' Day.

The governor posted a picture of a smiling President Barack Obama on her Facebook page Monday along with a headline saying he had finally agreed to tour the Arizona-Mexico border.

In all caps, the governor wrote "April Fools!"

Brewer has repeatedly called on Obama to tour the border with her so she can highlight border security problems. She argues that despite more Border Patrol agents, drug and human smuggling is still rampant in Southern Arizona.

Obama has never agreed to her requests.
