L.A. Times (half way down the piece):
… Immigration politics also surfaced in California’s gubernatorial race Tuesday, with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger renewing his support for the civilian Minuteman border patrols at a campaign stop to showcase his Latino supporters in a Mexican restaurant in Lynwood.
“I support any time that a civilian wants to go and do the job that law enforcement cannot do,” Schwarzenegger said in response to a question.
“I’m for that. I’m not for any harassment. I’m not for anyone carrying weapons. I’m not for any of that.
“But I have, for instance, in my house ? for years and years and years ? I’ve hired private security to take care of my house, because I felt that the police could not really cover every single house and protect the children and families.”
