Reporting from San Diego — The contingent of National Guard troops scheduled for deployment next month at the California- Mexico border will be smaller and more narrowly focused than past missions, aiming at front-line deterrence rather than building fences and roads, according to federal officials. The 224 California National Guard members are part of President Obama's move to bolster enforcement efforts along the entire U.S-Mexico border, first announced in May. Most of the 1,200 National Guard troops heading to the frontier, about 550, are going to Arizona, the major illegal immigration corridor into the U.S. The California contingent will be posted at strategic areas across San Diego County and will drive U.S. Border Patrol vehicles, using binoculars and night-vision goggles to spot incursions and report them to federal agents, according to Kim Holman, a National Guard spokeswoman.
about 550, are going to Arizona
3. I think we should just cut Arizona loose from the union, it's a useless state anyway. That's an interesting idea, forcibly remove a state from the union, send them on their way. Tell them, we don't want you anymore, you run yourself.

But think how great it would be, all those people that hate America could go to Arizona and live in a Conservative utopia! They could pass all sorts of laws like English only, the return of segregation, eliminate the right to vote for minorities and women, end all entitlement programs whatsoever, (no matter how much someone may actually need assistance), Christians only, and who knows what other Conservative ideals forced onto the people. Wouldn't it be great?
Wait... What? How did you get all that from the OP? And to set the record straight Republicans like President Dwight Eisenhower and Martin Luther King ended segregation, Democrats opposed ending it, but don't let history get in the way of your propaganda.

What we really should do is complete the wall,
set up 50 cal. fully automatic, surveillance operated shoot on site guns.
place them every 200 yards along the boarder.
this would be a very cost effective solution and cut down on the rat population.
