Arizona is now accepting donations to build a border fence in absense of any progress from the federal government to secure the U.S.-Mexico border and stem the flow of illegal immigration and human and drug trafficking. The Arizona State Legislature along with Governor Jan Brewer have set up an official government website and will use prison inmates as cheap labor to build the fence once they receive enough cash. Although the state fence cannot be built on federal land along the southern border with Mexico, legislators have said the majority of private land owners living in the area are more than happy to allow the fencing on their property.
