Some say, as does Henry Wade, that the border fence will just collect dust and that a fence does not work. Well, it does work. Since Yuma County built a fence, it has attained a 96 percent reduction of illegal border crossings in that sector.

Something has to be done; a normal fence made of steel and concrete or an 'invisible' fence linked to nearby I.N.S. substations that send out pen-point coordinates when people cross. Whatever it may be something MUST be done. The feds should charge a small fee (like freeway toll charges) to all automobiles and pedestrians that enter into the U.S. from Mexico and Canada at the ports of entry to finance a fence project and to hire more officers.

-Cheers.

Except it isn´t for a fence in their case...

I agree. That fence needs to be built, and a toll charged at border points of entry to finance it (look at how many cars pass through the San Ysidro POE every day alone)

Of course they won't do it. That'll make it seem like an awkward North American Union with a huge wall separating one of the "states"

Of course. Why is it that all illegal aliens can barely be touched by law enforcement, Mexico issuing Matrícula Consular cards that are ACCEPTED by banks and other establishments as VALID ID? I think we already are in the NAU, except the free movement of people is a one-way street presently. What did the EU officials celebrate in recent times? The 50th anniversary of the European Union. But wait, wasn't the European Union created in 1999? Not according to high officials in Brussels. Food for thought

Yes, this really is about the globalist agenda and cheap labor that gets certain elites very rich quickly.

It's not about the American people for sure, but hard to say if it's really supposed to benefit any people other than the few elites who benefit from all this.

Wow, can you imagine? Governments issuing documents to their citizens, and those documents actually being accepted? Clearly, civilization is totally over.

Bad enough your government won't actively observe it's own laws regarding illegal entry but then you think it appropriate to start charging Canadians for a fence you need along your southern border?

IF your intention is to build a fence on your northern border then I guess charging Canadians would be the norm for your borderaphobic thinking. Gotta say though, you build a fence through the Great Lakes, it'll just make it more difficult to disguise the water level dropping on your side of the fence.

How about this instead; you got a problem; you fix it at your own expense!
