We Need A Fence!

Momentum builds for fence along U.S.-Mexican border
A once-radical idea to build a 2,000-mile steel-and-wire fence on the U.S.-Mexican border is gaining momentum amid warnings that terrorists can easily sneak into the country.

In Congress, a powerful Republican lawmaker this week proposed building such a fence across the entire border and two dozen other lawmakers signed on. And via the Internet, a group called weneedafence.com has raised enough money to air TV ads warning that the border is open to terrorists.

Even at the Homeland Security Department, which opposes building a border-long fence, Secretary Michael Chertoff this fall waived environmental laws so that construction can continue on a 14-mile section of fence near San Diego that has helped border agents stem the flow of illegal migrants and drug runners

I checked this out and I must say, I like the idea. Illegal Immigration is a problem and the longer we do nothing about it, the more likely it is that an increasing number of terrorists will take advantage of this situation. Building a state-of-the-art fence would greatly reduce the number of illegals that come over the border. A fence such as this was built in Israel and has helped to reduce terrorism by 95%. It's time our President accepted the necessity for a fence to protect us, which would be not only beneficial for us citizens, but for his approval rating. If a terrorist comes in through the border, he is going to be blamed for saying this is going to cost too much; which the Libs will accuse him letting this happen; even though they severely oppose it. Anyways; Please comment. Let's start a discussion, I want to hear your opinions. Also check out: weneedafence.com for more information.
