    Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano declared a state of emergency along the Mexican border on Monday in an effort to fight a tidal wave of illegal immigration and Mexican drug cartel activity in the state.

    Napolitano is earmarking $1.5 million in state emergency funds to Yuma, Cochise, Pima and Santa Cruz counties (all of which border on Mexico). The money will be used to help law enforcement agencies combat drug traffickers, illegal immigrant smugglers and criminal gangs operating along the border.
