With the advent of Arizona's homegrown effort to build a border wall, there's suddenly competition for the fight-illegal-immigration dollar.

Gov. Jan Brewer says she wishes the effort of Sen. Steve Smith, R-Maricopa, success. But don't count on her for a donation to Build the Border Fence fund anytime soon.

"If I had extra money, I'd certainly contribute," she said when asked at a Flagstaff news conference about kicking in.
She noted that, after all, she's got a fund of her own to stump for -- a legal defense fund to cover attorney's fees in the court battle over SB1070.

So far, her fund has raised $3.8 million. The wall fund has a long way to go to measure up: In its first 24 hours, it attracted more than $58,000.
