WASHINGTON — A Republican senator said Wednesday the government should consider deputizing private citizens, like the Minuteman Patrol in Arizona, to help secure U.S. borders.

Sen. Wayne Allard, R-Colo., said the U.S. Border Patrol also should look to local law enforcement and state officials for help along the most porous parts of the U.S.-Mexico line.

“I wonder sometimes if maybe we’re not looking too much to a federal solution,” Allard told Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff during a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing.

“I happen to believe that those people down along the border that formed the Minutemen organization have some real concerns,” Allard said.
