WASHINGTON (AP) -- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says she and President Barack Obama have agreed to try to work together on a solution to the nation's immigration and border security woes.

Brewer also says Obama assured her that most of the 1,200 National Guard troops he is sending to the southern border will be coming to her state. Brewer recently signed a tough new immigration enforcement law that requires police to check people's immigration status.

Obama has denounced the law as discriminatory.

Brewer spoke today after a half-hour meeting with Obama in the Oval Office.
