After reporting sluggish progress last month, U.S. officials announce that the stretch of barriers has grown to 145 miles.

SAN LUIS, Ariz. The federal government's border fencing effort has accelerated rapidly in recent weeks with barriers rising in towns from California to New Mexico and workers completing the longest stretch of continuous fencing on the U.S.-Mexico frontier.

The Department of Homeland Security reached its goal of completing 70 miles of new fencing by the end of this month, nearly doubling the length of barriers on the border to about 145 miles.

i dont really want a border fence, kind of reminds me of the berlin wall, but , the berlin wall was to keep people in...not to keep them out.
so.....maybe a wall is what we need, to keep the illegals out....forcing them to follow the rules...finally some progress, wonder just how long it'll take before it's finished.
