Governor Still Not Declaring State Of Emergency

Sacramento, CA — New Mexico and Arizona have declared a state of emergency in some counties to counter a flood of illegal immigrants, but California´s governor doesn´t have that power.

Some Republican lawmakers want to fix that through a new bill. Governor Schwarzenegger supports the general effort, but has said the immigration problem in California doesn´t yet warrant an actual declaration.
