Alot of cars are stolen where I am in AZ only to be found by the border or just over it beat up and abandoned , I would imagine you cant smuggle 800 pounds of potor illegals in the back of the van, they usually do searches. I imagine they drive through paths made in the desert.

My point is that I want to read about the protection of our borders, not about our BP agents being crucified at the altar of political correctness. I agree that something smells of coverup, and that too should be shaken out. If the cops are wrong and at fault for wrongdoing, they deserve whatever prosecution they get. Follow the law.

Just a band aid again, we will probably use illegals to build it.
Sounds good to me...

But does anyone really know how much it would cost?

Pres. Clinton was able to fence 40 miles before his term was up...who will finish the job?????

Well if the idiots used the right fencing, have you seen it? It is basically tin! it needs to be a 20 foot high block wall fence with razor wire!! Not some idiotic metal fence that my kids could climb!!

Personally, I'd offer amnesty to a herd of illegals to get the fence built. I'd of course go back on my word and quickly deport them.

All of this is just talk though. More political pandering. A president that calls the Minutemen "vigilantes" cannot be serious about border protection.
Border fence, abortion, and gay marriage. All tools of the proliteriate elite to have its bidding done by the faithful subjects of the empire.

Thumbs up Bush signs bill for U.S.-Mexico border fence

The bill is signed, 700 miles of fencing to be installed, 1.2 billion down payment on the project. Do we have better use for this money? Yes

Lets see who will installed the fence?

President Bush signed a bill Thursday authorizing 700 miles of new fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border, hoping to give Republican candidates a pre-election platform for asserting they’re tough on illegal immigration.

Its cost is not known, although a homeland security spending measure the president signed earlier this month makes a $1.2 billion down payment on the project. The money also can be used for access roads, vehicle barriers, lighting, high-tech equipment and other tools to secure the border.

If it was built like the wall Israel erected between the West Bank and Israel proper, it would work. Before that fence/wall was built, Palestinian suicide bombers were blowing up innocent civilians in buses, supermarkets, cafes, etc. on a regular basis. After the wall was built, it was so effective that a year can go by now without a terrorist suicide bombing...they can't get through. The Israelis used concrete panels interlocked with each other and razor wire on top. I've seen the wall the Chinese are building on their border with North Korea... It looks like a clothes line! Even my grandma...with a little boost and a blanket for the barbs... could climb over that thing. We need a real border fence, not a child's fort wall. A triple fence with at least one of those three modeled after the Israeli wall with patrols and lighting and sensors would work best. And it would indeed be effective...IF...it's built correctly.
