The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced more than $12 million in grant awards to the four Southwest border states in support of ongoing local law-enforcement efforts at the border. The funding, as part of Operation Stonegarden, assists local authorities with operational costs and equipment purchases that contribute to border security. The distribution of these funds is: Arizona, $6.35 million; California, $1 million; New Mexico, $1.58 million; and Texas, $3 million. "Local law enforcement plays an undeniable role in helping to combat crime and secure the border," said Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. "Our ultimate success at the border is going to require close coordination with local authorities and sustained commitments to remedying a security challenge that has been decades in the making."
