A fence? Did someone say something about a border fence?
Via AP: The Senate voted to build 370 miles of triple-layered fencing along the Mexican border Wednesday and clashed over citizenship for millions of men and women who live in the United States illegally.
Amid increasingly emotional debate over election-year immigration legislation, senators voted 83-16 to add fencing and 500 miles of vehicle barriers along the southern border. It marked the first significant victory in two days for conservatives seeking to place their stamp on the contentious measure.
370 miles isn’t a lot when you consider the thousands of miles of border shared with Mexico. Sure, it’s 370 more miles than we would have otherwise, but I’m worried that this is nothing more than another Rhino compromise to ensure amnesty.
