Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The top U.S. border enforcement official said Wednesday that his agency is exploring ways to involve citizen volunteers in creating ``something akin to a Border Patrol auxiliary'' - a significant shift in rhetoric that comes after a high-profile civilian campaign this spring along the Arizona-Mexico border.

Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Robert C. Bonner told The Associated Press that his agency has focused on involving citizens after noting the willingness of volunteers to help federal agents catch illegal immigrants.

``It is actually as a result of seeing that there is the possibility in local border communities, and maybe even beyond, of having citizens that would be willing to volunteer to help the Border Patrol,'' Bonner said.
