The House of Representatives authorized the governor to deploy the Arizona National Guard to the border, set aside $10 million to pay for it and toughened trespassing laws to crack down on day laborers. In the state Senate, lawmakers approved a Homeland Security Force that would be separate from the Arizona National Guard and free of any federal authority to commandeer it. Although envisioned as a local readiness force that could respond to anything from a flood to a bird-flu epidemic, it is widely viewed as a homegrown border patrol. advertisement Thursday's votes represent the halfway mark for the bills; House-approved bills now move to the Senate, and vice versa. The National Guard bill, House Bill 2766, reinforces the governor's existing power to deploy the National Guard in the event of an immigration-caused emergency. Its most controversial provision was a clause that stated the guard "does not need to retreat" - a direct response to an incident earlier this year in southeastern Arizona where a National Guard contingent from Tennessee withdrew from its post when a group of four armed men approached from the north. Rep. Warde Nichols, the bill's sponsor, said he felt it was necessary to emphasize that the guard, if operating under the governor's control, would not need to retreat. Democrats unsuccessfully pushed to have the phrase removed, saying the National Guard found the reference insulting. And, any offense aside, Democrats argued that the reference is unnecessary, since Guard members have a duty to defend and can fire if they feel their lives are endangered. The bill includes $10 million that the governor can use to pay for Guard costs. The bill passed on a 38-15 vote, with seven members not voting. Several Democrats voted for the measure, including Rep. Pete Rios, D-Hayden, who said he intended to hold Nichols to his statement that he would consider amending the bill in the Senate to remove the "retreat" language. The House also approved House Bill 2589, which would hike the penalties for trespassing in an attempt to discourage people from crowding street corners looking for work.

Another useless gesture to make it look like the government is doing something.

I like it, but it depends on the Governor putting it in place. I guess it will be an election point, if she doesn't, though.

I think Arizona is a piece of s*hit land that gives credit for itself too much, the only partially good city you guys have maybe scottsdale, tucson is a dump hole. Every Mexican should ban this state and Latin American Governments too. You guys cannot grow squat, you rely on Mexifornia for most of your daily eating!

It's a start Next time, how about deleting the extra junk at the top of your quote and remove the extra lines. It makes it easier to read what you are trying to say.
