U.S. adds 500 to patrol Ariz. border
: "WASHINGTON - More than 500 additional Border Patrol agents are being assigned to beef up patrols along the Arizona-Mexico border, with as many as 150 to 200 officers already headed there, federal officials and others said Tuesday.
That news comes just days before civilian volunteers, calling themselves the Minuteman Project, are to begin their own monthlong patrols for immigrants crossing the border.
Organizers have said they expect at least 1,000 people to participate. "
