How are efforts to secure our border deemed as disregarding protection and benefits to the public and environment? What could be more detrimental than to allow our borders to remain open to any criminal or terrorist seeking to harm our citizens? Furthermore, the environment suffers tremendously due to the massive littering and destruction of our forestry by illegal aliens who have no regard for this country.

Senor Rodriguez is simply concerned that the wall may in fact prevent some of his ‘people’ from illegally gaining entry.

In a major setback to critics of the Department of Homeland Security’s border wall, a federal judge in Texas has denied a request to temporarily halt construction of the wall, which is fast underway in the El Paso area.

Quietly issuing his ruling on Friday, August 29, just before the start of the Labor Day weekend, US District Judge Frank Montalvo turned down a request by the County of El Paso and other plaintiffs for a preliminary injunction.

“The case is not over yet,” said El Paso County Attorney Jose Rodriguez in a statement. “This lawsuit involves an unprecedented delegation of authority by the Congress to the executive branch, because it allows DHS Secretary Chertoff to disregard long-standing federal laws that provide protection and benefits to the public and the environment.”

I think that many of the representatives of the Latino movement are racists. I have never seen such hatred coming from any group since the KKK.

I think the big legal issue is that Chertoff blasted through 30 environmental and other laws to build the fence, in effect signifying that laws are enforceable...but only when they don't get in the way. Add the prospect of UT-Brownsville being cut in half, the unknown extent of impact on the desert ecosystem and wildlife, and you have a recipe for some pretty heated opposition.

Not a very good example for the US Government to set for its own citizens.

Speaking of bad Examples:

The same can be said about the Mexican government who hand out maps while encouraging their illegal aliens to breach our borders:

Desert Invasion - U.S.

Crossers burying border in garbage - Despite cleanups, trash along smuggling routes piles up faster than ever
By Tony Davis, Arizona Daily Star
July 30, 2006
Crossers burying border in garbage | www.azstarnet.com ® (http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/border/140004 - broken link)
After three years of cleanups, the federal government has achieved no better than a 1 percent solution for the problem of trash left in Southern Arizona by illegal border-crossers.
Cleanup crews from various agencies, volunteer groups and the Tohono O'odham Nation hauled about 250,000 pounds of trash from thousands of acres of federal, state and private land across Southern Arizona in 2002 to 2005, says the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
But that's only a fraction of the nearly 25 million pounds of trash thought to be out there.

From the air it looks like snow in some areas.
