The latest battle in the ballyhoo to build a fence along the Mexican border -- involves private donations and prisoner labor.
The State of Arizona has announced it will actively seek private donors to do what the state says -- the federal government won’t.
Fox News has the background.
"Governor Jan Brewer just signing a bill launching a website to raise funds. And the market pitch, get this, could include offering sponsorships for contributors or certificates, saying the person helped build the Arizona wall. I don't know John, it could be like a ballpark?"
Now wait a minute, Mother Jones says, haven’t we heard this pitch before?
“This isn't the first time Arizona has tried soliciting donations to carry out state business. In 2010, faced with an extraordinary budget deficit due to the deflated housing bubble and some pretty terrible legislating, the legislature passed a new law that sought to balance the budget by kindly asking citizens to donate money to the "IDidn'tPayEnoughFund" (their phrase, not mine).“
But Gather says, at least Arizona is willing to back up -- what its spouts off about.
“People are fed up with the lack of border security, and landowners on the border, at the most immediate risk, want action...the plan would use minimum security prisoners. ... The prisoners' pay? Fifty cents per hour. Compared to the double-digit dollar figure for construction workers, that sounds like the deal of the century.”
But before you says -- brilliant! Consider this. The Tucson Citzen notes, the State of Arizona -- has very little say about much of the land which borders Mexico.
“There is just one little problem with the scheme of Arizona building its own border fence….most of the border is owned by the US federal government or the Tohono O’dham Indian Nation...The chances of the federal government allowing the state to run around federal land constructing roads and a border fence are approximately zero....”
Finally, the New York Post says, don’t forget -- Arizona is still trying to dig itself out of debt from it’s OTHER immigration fight with the federal government.
“...Arizona is already using funds collected from across the country in order to defend their immigration laws (SB 1070) from a federal government lawsuit to prevent implementation. It is going to take millions more than they have already collected to defend 1070 so it seems unlikely that there will be enough money to build the fence.”
