Arnold on the border

As thousands of immigrants enter the United States illegally from Mexico and the Bush administration is seemingly unwilling to do much about it, the Minutemen Project, an armed citizens group, has stepped up and is having an impact, at least politically.

Governor Schwarzenegger has endorsed their efforts.
"Our federal government is not doing their job," Schwarzenegger said. "It's a shame that the private citizen has to go in there and start patrolling our borders."
I am curious why the governor of one of the four states bordering Mexico would be so quick to criticize the federal government for its lack of enforcement. Don't the four states have some responsibility, Arnold?
