Not really, IMO. The Federal government has failed to uphold its end of the deal on protecting the nation's borders, of which AZ is part of. So, they feel the need to defend it on their own.

Now, if say KANSAS passed the same law, there might be a bit more reason for a WTF moment.

Granted this could backfire, and AZ could use the new state guard to instill some sort of martial law on citizens, but I really don't think that's the intent here.

And it will probably get jammed up in the court system shortly, just like their immigration enforcement bill did. But at least they're trying to come up with a solution. I live in L.A. and it might as well be part of Mexico (or at least an independent city-state. The diversity is great in a lot of ways, but not in every way).

One thing thats odd is that a recent post on here stated that 350,000 detainee pamphlets were to be sent out on april 29th maybe they are planing something.

Now I'm wondering if red superhero capes and National Detainee Handbooks are going to be standard issue for this new army?

i think it was part of mexico.

i understand their frustration but there's better ways to handle the situation, instead of wasting money on an army to watch a fence. dont like arizona? move. no one likes arizona anyways. and if ppl absolutely have to live there to survive, then there's a bigger issue at hand.

Actually I liked AZ when I was stationed there.

Except the heat...but it's a dry heat.


As far as border protection goes, maybe we should bring our actual military HOME instead of sending them off to fight battles in other countries. Then things like this bill wouldn't be considered a necessary step by states. That's really what the national military is supposed to be for anyway...DEFENDING our country.

So, if Im reading correctly, if the AZ National Guard is given orders from the Federal level, the AZ governer is supposed to have the ability to start another "Guard" called the State Guard? How many military branches do we need now?

What exactly is the reason for this? The first thing that comes to mind is the Mexico situation. I could be wrong about that though. If it is the reason, why cant they just send the AZ National Guard to the border? Can the governer not do that? Ive always thought the states National Guard can be ordered by both Federal and State governments?

I wonder if more states will follow suite and start their own armies. Then turn around and use them against the federal army in the next Civil War... Me thinks so.

Jan is going to need an army if she keeps pulling the $#!+ she's been pulling, like giving giant tax breaks to giant corporations, then denying poor people their medical insurance benefits when they are waiting on an organ transplant. Seriously, this state is falling further and further into poverty, and she wants to fund an army? There doesn't need to be some crazy conspiratorial reason for this to be utter madness.

yea that would make more sense, protect our borders instead of caves in the middle of nowhere, but armed forces? sounds a little too nazi-ish for my taste. question is where it'll stop, will they start invading homes and collecting ppl into vans?

Many states have "state" guards. They are a unit that fills in for the national guard when the feds call the national guard up and leave a void. Governors can use them for disaster assistance etc.

You can google state guard and get a lot of information on them.

According to the bill the state guard would be exempt from federal mandates so only brewer would have control.
Maybe they think that the National guard would be a problem. Whats weird is the purpose and why is it so secret that no news agency is reporting it. KOLD 13 had the story but it got pulled today cant find it and KGUN 9 has not mentioned anything. Pheonix Az has one article but in order to get thegoods i had to look in the Gov site to find it.

Whats even stranger is yeah a state guard was always kinda a plan b if national guard was deployed but the Amendment to the bill was the she can activate anytime she see's fit. What would be an excuse for her to use it. Kinda reminds me of the whole brown shirts and black shirts in nazi germany when hitler purged the opposition and had all brown shirts soldiers detained and killed. Spooky!!!

they should bring back militia's, even though it would more likely cause a lot more problems but it would get the job done

Don't get me wrong, I don't like the idea of military patrols here either. But it seems to be the only way to not have our borders look like slices of swiss cheese at this point.

I just dont like the idea of untrained militia groups having the same authority as real millitary personal with all the racial tensions going on here a big disaster is prone to happen. I want to know if they are going to the border or will brewer use them to conduct raids in town and alot of people might get hurt on both sides. Where are these people coming from and are they going to have Millitary Bdu's on? Alot of confusion on knowing who is who and how are we going to pay for it az is broke and how many numbers of people are they going to hire.
