Obama is asking for $450 billion in new stimulus spending. Why not use a small portion of that stimulus to build a REAL border fence? I’m sure the Tea Party would support this kind of infrastructure spending. To make the left happy, union labor could used for the construction. It would be a win-win for everyone.
A border fence could create thousands of new jobs, while at the same time, helping to secure the border. Once the border is secure, we can enter into a discussion as to how to handle the 20 million undocumented aliens that are currently in the United States, which would be welcome news for Hispanics who would like to see immigration reform.
The fence must be built to exacting standards. The virtual fence was a 3 billion dollar boondoggle. A less than adequate fence, or a so called virtual fence, would not secure the border. The proof that the current fence is woefully inadequate is demonstrated in the following video.
