Undated — Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says the federal government could afford to secure the country´s border with Mexico if it were a priority.
In a Fox News interview the governor once again reiterated his support for the Minuteman Project, saying it´s natural for citizens to rise up if the government fails to secure the border.
Schwarzenegger has been an outspoken critic of the Bush administration´s policies on illegal immigration.
The Minuteman Project is a group of armed citizens who have been patrolling the Arizona border since April. The group plans to begin patrolling the California border near San Diego in August.
