PHOENIX -

Gov. Jan Brewer says Arizona's border with Mexico will not be secure until people living in the region feel safe from drug and human smugglers.
 
Her remarks came hours before President Barack Obama was expected to promote his immigration plan in Tuesday night's State of the Union address.

Brewer said Afghanistan has safer borders and called for more fences, drones and law enforcement officials after touring the border near Tucson in an Arizona National Guard Blackhawk helicopter for nearly three hours.
 
Brewer also met Tuesday with ranchers from along the border and Border Patrol officials.
 
Last month, Obama unveiled his immigration proposal supporting a path to citizenship for the nation's estimated 11 million illegal immigrants.

Arizona Republican Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake have also called for an immigration overhaul.
