please tell me how can you be against a Border Fence?

How can you be against it? don't play the race card, it has been the first and last card in the statist deck, a card you can no longer use.

Which border? How long a fence? What depth of clear zone next to the fence? What level of patrol along that fence and clear zone? Now calculate the cost and the feasibility of what you want and get back to us.

Good thing you clarified that. I almost thought the OP was talking about purple trolls.

I have a nice border fence lining my garden.
I dare say the deer are vehemently against it.


Same situation here as the Mexicans want to eat all our heirloom seed lettuce.

Living in a such a repressive country like the U.S., I'm opposed to any border fence, fearful the day comes we'll be trapped here, no way to get out!

When anarchy swept Iran after disposal of the Shah, many were trapped there, unable to get out!

I can just see it! Anarchy/fascism sweeps the country, we all make a beeline for the Mexican border, now all fenced in! There we are, suitcases in hand, pounding on the border fences, while laughing Mexican border guards throw rocks at us!

Mexican border guards shoot to kill on their southern border FYI.

Could a fence be built to keep our military from invading a sovereign nation to amuse the simpletons we`re forced to live with? Probably not.

I don't know that I'd support a fence along the entire length, but I would support things like drone patrols, seismic sensors, and a drastic increase in manpower. A controlled border doesn't mean a closed border. I'm Mexican-American, btw. Zero sympathy for the Teabag/Minuteman crowd, but I see the need for a controlled border.
