It's not machine gun towers and land mines but it is a step closer.

Ariz. Governor Orders Troops to Border

Gov. Janet Napolitano on Wednesday ordered more National Guardsmen posted at the Mexican border to help stop illegal immigrants and curb related crimes.

National Guard troops have worked at the border since 1988, but Napolitano signed an order authorizing commanders to station an unspecified number of additional soldiers there to help federal agents.

Once the funding is approved, the troops will monitor crossing points, assist with cargo inspection and operate surveillance cameras, according to the order.

"They are not there to militarize the border," the governor said. "We are not at war with Mexico."

About 170 National Guardsmen are already posted at the nation's busiest illegal entry point, where they assist with communications, fence construction and anti-drug efforts.

Napolitano did not say how many additional troops would be stationed at the border and referred questions to the National Guard, which did not immediately return a call.

Napolitano has asked the military to pay for her plan, but said she would commit state dollars if necessary.

The governor declared an immigration emergency last summer in Arizona's four border counties, citing security shortcomings by the federal government.

Oh yes....we are. They just don't realize it, or if they do, they're laughing at us.

The AZ govornor is an idiot like the LA one. She got herself in this prediciment by offering vital services to illegal aliens, and as such they just flocked into her state. Now that the people who vote are not happy about the illegals and since illegals can't vote she is now for border security, and blames her situation on Bush. Give me a little bit to google up some of the info.
