ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is standing by the criticism she leveled earlier this week in response to the shooting that left a border patrol agent dead.
Brewer earlier said a political stalemate and the federal government's failures have left the border unsecured and Border Patrol agents in harm's way.
The FBI says a preliminary investigation has found friendly fire is likely to blame.
At a gathering of border governors in Albuquerque on Friday, Brewer said it was the federal government's responsibly to secure the border.
Brewer plans to attend a memorial service for Border Patrol Agent Nicolas Ivie on Monday in Sierra Vista.
Also Friday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano traveled to Arizona to express her condolences to Ivie's family and meet with authorities about the investigation.
