PHOENIX (KSAZ) -  Governor Jan Brewer has spoken out about the influx of illegal immigrants from Central America.

She's called what is happening inhumane and demanded that the federal government be more open with her office and also stop the problem.

The numbers keep on growing with unaccompanied children and families from across Central America entering the United States from Mexico.

In Phoenix the Arizona and Sonoran Mexico Governor's talked business, but immigration loomed large.

"We cannot by any stretch of the imagination continue to have an influx of what we have seen in the past few days and weeks," said Gov. Jan Brewer.

The Governor's met at the Arizona-Mexico Commission Conference, and the Governor of Sonora described the situation on his side of the border.

"What we try to do is help them, give them any aid they need, and also give them information trying to persuade them not to take that step and come into the United States.

"I wish that immigration reform could be here in the United States, so that they could legally find a way to stay here in this country if that is possible,"

While the Governors spoke with the valley, Senator John McCain toured the holding facility in Goales, Arizona where more than 800 kids are being housed in a converted warehouse.

"Until we provide an immediate consequence for every individual that enters illegaly people will try to come and exploit the sympathetic nature of Americans," said Brewer.

While she criticized the federal government, Brewer refused to weigh in on what should happen to all these people.

"I think it was a created crisis, and it is their responsibility to deal with it and get it solved," she said.

"Certainly we all care about children, and humanity as a whole, mothers and fathers. But you know we believe in the rule of law, and I think we need our border secured and then we won't have to be faced with it again," said Brewer.

The Governor said she was also considering a visit to the Nogales facility.
