PHOENIX (AP) - One candidate called for sending National Guard troops and to build fences on the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas to stem the tide of immigrants, and forwarding the bill to President Barack Obama.

Another candidate suggested deploying satellites to control the border. Still another participated in a demonstration in which protesters hoped to block a rumored busload of child immigrants to a small Arizona town.

The Republican race for Arizona governor began quietly with a focus on Medicaid, Common Core education standards and ways to boost the state's economy, but has taken an abrupt turn toward a familiar topic: immigration.

It has also flared up as a campaign issue in a few spots around the country since the influx of immigrants.
