Janet Napolitano reporting for border duty

Gee, and you wonder why Arizona is trying to take back control of its border?

The feds aren't doing it apparently.

No, I'm not racist, and I am NEVER on the side of the Nazi's.

NEVER!  So don't even go there. Hell, my parents were both concentration camp survivors.

I am glad the officer is recovering.

Arizona deputy shot; illegal immigrants suspected

PHOENIX (AP) -- Law officers backed by helicopters hunted gunmen in Arizona's desert early Saturday after a sheriff's deputy was wounded by suspected illegal immigrants believed to be smuggling marijuana, officials said. The violent episode came amid nationwide debate over the state's tough new immigration law.

Pinal County Deputy Louie Puroll was patrolling alone Friday afternoon in a rugged area near Interstate 8, about 50 miles south of Phoenix, when he came upon a band of suspected smugglers, authorities said.

At least one of five suspects opened fire on the 53-year-old lawman, tearing a chunk of skin from just above his left kidney. The officer was found after a frantic hourlong search, Pinal County sheriff's Lt. Tamatha Villar said.
