Legislator proposes volunteer-based Arizona border force – Homeland Security Newswire

In another indication that illegal immigration remains a concern for Arizona lawmakers, a legislator said Monday he plans to revive once-vetoed legislation to create a new state volunteer force that could be used help patrol the U.S.-Mexico border.

Republican Senator Jack Harper of Sun City West said the legislation he plans to pre-file in December for consideration during the 2011 regular session will be similar to a 2007 bill vetoed by then-Gov. Janet Napolitano.
