Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said the nation's policy on preventing illegal immigration is too lax, telling a group of newspaper publishers the United States needs to "close the borders."

"Close the borders in California and all across Mexico and in the United States," Schwarzenegger said Tuesday at the annual meeting of the Newspaper Association of America. "Because I think it is just unfair to have all those people coming across, have the borders open the way it is, and have this kind of lax situation."

I am pleasantly surprised to see normally liberal Ahnold come out strong on border enforcement. This is a step in the right direction. If he invites the Minutemen to come patrol California's border, I know that I've died and gone to heaven...
