Arizona-Mexico Border Fence
This is a picture of the fence that the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps will build. They say they will begin building in Arizona on Memorial Day weekend if President Bush doesn't deploy National Guard and reserve troops to immediately secure the out-of-control southern border. They have already received permission from several landowners and a couple of construction companies have offered to help. The fencing will be built with privately donated funds.
I really like the idea of building the fences privately, especially since the Bush administration seems to have little desire to enforce the borders. This is a really big failure on the part of the Bush Administration. I, like the majority of the U.S., am concerned about the ease in which people can cross the border. It's a miracle that terrorists have not brought anything across so far.
What happens if this idea really works? The Bush administration will be really embarrassed when these fences slow down the illegal immigration traffic. Quite frankly, it's a mystery to me why President Bush refuses to secure our southern border. It's one thing that he can do which will make the amnesty program more acceptable to people.
