BISBEE — Smugglers recently removed two mesh panels from U.S.-Mexico border fencing located east of the San Pedro River, and Border Patrol officials have repaired them. The precise location of these fence sections is near low-water crossing number 38, known as Gringo Wash. The damage to one section was discovered on Jan. 28. Officials fixed it late last week. Officials noticed the damage on the other section last Monday and it was fixed this week. http://images.townnews.com/svherald.com/content/articles/2009/02/07/news/doc498d49489c32c913957932.jpg (broken link)
News : Smugglers cut border fence : Sierra Vista, AZ (http://www.svherald.com/articles/2009/02/07/news/doc498d49489c32c913957932.txt - broken link)

It's time to build a 30 foot high brick wall around the entire perimeter of the mexican border. Once completed, arm it with guards with shoot to kill orders. Deduct the cost from any foreign aid, prior to sending it to mexico. Maybe then they will understand how much of an expensive, undesirable, pain in the ass they really are.

President Obama needs to contact the contractors who built that fence in Israel. If that aint the next most effective thing to a shoot to kill policy on the border nothing will work.

Agreed. Not only is their fence money well spent, it actually does what it is supposed to do: keep out ALL criminals and invaders.

Agreed. We also need the will of the government and corporate masters to care about the American people in order to rid ourselves of the illegal alien criminals amongst us. Therein lies the difference between Israel and the US.

Oh well: both the Berlin Wall and the wall separating Gaza from Israel are ugly but were/are quite effective.

In the case of the Wall: what ultimately killed that idea was the E German people revolted and that country's government capitulated since the old USSR would not back up the VoPos----------too, the W Germans also wanted said wall gone as well.

As for that similar barrier keeping the Gazans out of Israel: if I were an Israeli; I sure as hell would not want those troublemaker/breeder people in my nation either----------and, I am not even Jewish.
