Build It & They Will Not Come

Senate Passes Border Fence

The Senate by a vote of 80-19 easily passed a bill for a 700 mile double-layered fence along the Mexican border. A few weeks ago the House passed the bill. Now it goes to the President for his signing. The Senate also approved an initial $1.2 billion of a projected $6 billion cost.

We are pleased that this step has been taken. Congress is slowly waking up to the wishes of the vast majority of Americans who think border control is way overdue. The up-coming November elections were an additional impetus to get the Congress moving on border control. Before any talk of immigration, legal & illegal, control & enforcement at our borders must come first.

Mexico has already condemned the vote, which is reason enough to build a fence along the entire 2,000 mile border. Environmentalists are outraged as well - think of what the fence will do to coyote migration & blah, blah, blah. Of course, they say not a word about the literally hundreds of tons of debris & trash that illegal aliens leave in pristine desert areas & national parks. One has to wonder why the environmentalists are silent on this subject. They are hypocrites.
