Arizona Seeks Donations to Build Border Fence

Sunday, 08 May 2011 06:20 PM

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona lawmakers want more fence along the border with Mexico — whether the federal government thinks it's necessary or not.

They've got a plan that could get a project started using Internet donations and prison labor. If they get enough money, all they would have to do is get cooperation from landowners and construction could begin.

Gov. Jan Brewer recently signed a bill that sets the state on a course that begins with launching a website to raise money for the work.

Arizona — mired in a budget crisis — is already using public donations to pay for its legal defense of the SB1070 illegal immigration crackdown law.
