Good Fences make Good Neighbors

 Pathetic (c/o B. Townsend)

Senators on Tuesday rejected building the 700 miles of double-tier border fencing Congress authorized just seven years ago, with a majority of the Senate saying they didn’t want to delay granting illegal immigrants legal status while the fence was being built!  (emphasis Guffaw)

The 54-39 vote to reject the fence shows the core of the immigration deal is holding. The vote broke mostly along party lines, though five Republicans, including Sen. Marco Rubio and the rest of the bill’s authors, voted against the fence, and two Democrats voted for it.

Shocked, shocked I tell you!cap renault

  1. I’m against the border fence. The main reason is, many parts of it are not on the border, and are actually fencing out US citizens from their own country! I find that unacceptable.

    • I don’t think positioning is the real issue. It’s sovereignty.
      Certainly, I believe we should have some kind of boundary separating us from other nations.
      Of course, it’s should be placed on the border, or as near to it as practicable.
      Otherwise, policing for smuggling, illegal aliens, etc. is just silly.

      • My concern is that US citizens left on the “other side” will become targets for kidnapping/attack by smugglers, in order to get their credentials/codes to get through the gates.
        Plus, increased time for first responders, etc.

        I think it’s reprehensible that the fence was planned/built to the exclusion of law-abiding, tax-paying, citizens on the border. I’ll never support it as long as that condition exists.

      • In today’s political climate, a proper fence in a proper location will never exist.
        So, you needn’t worry.

  2. The entire boondoggle stinks to high heaven, and always has. The Congress doesn’t want the fence, and their actions show it. Border wars intensifying in 3 … 2 …

  3. They won’t ever build a *real* fence.
    Besides the people who make tons of $$$ smuggling (cough..border patrol..cough), the Endangered Species Act will rear its ugly head to protect some snail or frog in a ditch.
    We’re screwed again…

  5. I honestly don’t understand republican reasoning on this issue. I know what the democrats will get out of this, total control of the govt. forever. What do the repubs think they are going to get?

  6. I really believe there are many republicans that would prefer not to have real power. Being in the minority still pays the same. Then they can just sit back, collect their paycheck and pension but never have to do anything except maybe complain now and then for show. That way they don’t have to make the unpopular choices that are needed to put this country back on track. If the dems get half of what they want in this immigration debate there will never be another republican president and eventually they will lose control of congress too, and I think many of our republican representatives don’t have an issue with that.
