    CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- Authorities in southern Arizona were searching Friday for a wounded deputy who radioed for help and said he had been shot with an AK-47 assault rifle in a remote desert area used by drug- and human-smugglers from Mexico.

    The unidentified deputy called in to say he had encountered a group and been shot in the abdomen, Pinal County sheriff's Lt. Tammy Villar said.

    Further details on the shooting were not immediately available.

    "Over the past 12 months we've seen an increase in the amount of drugs, and an increase in violence that has been going on in this particular corridor," Villar told KPNX.

    "We've had increasing concerns in this area about being outmanned and outgunned, and unfortunately this evening, this is coming true," he said.

    The shooting came as Arizona grapples with backlash over its enactment of a tough new law targeting illegal immigration. Civil rights activists concerned the law will lead to racial profiling have called for a boycott of the state.

    The law signed by Gov. Jan Brewer last week is supported by many in the state, which has become a major gateway for drug smuggling and human trafficking from Mexico.

    Its passage came amid increasing anger in Arizona about violence, drug smugglers, drop houses and other problems caused by poor border security.

    Villar said the search for the wounded officer was occurring near Interstate 8 and Arizona 84 about 50 miles south of Phoenix.

    These vermin travel this corridor at all hours of the day and night!! I never venture into the desert alone and when my buddy and I do, we're well armed!!

    Folks, this nonsense must be stopped at any and all costs! We're being literally invaded and the federal government could care less according to their actions!!

    A friend lives about 50 miles to the south of me and they broke into his garage and stole his pick-up! The highway patrol caught up with his truck near Phoenix and they drove off into the desert and totaled the truck!!

    Profiling?? What a joke!!

    Last news I saw on TV was the Sheriffs dept. had cordoned off a 10 sq.mile area and caught 17 illegals. At the same time the Border Patrol was working in close proximity caught another 100 illegals! They believe the injured deputy has identified two or three of those he was trailing when he was ambushed.
