Senate Refuses to Fund Border Fence

Anyone unconvinced that the Senate categorically refuses to resist the ongoing Mexican invasion will be surprised to learn that even though that august body voted 83-16 to build a fence across a token 370 miles of the nearly 2,000-mile border, it has now voted 79-29 not to fund it.

As pointed out by Jeff Sessions (R-AL), one of the lonely voices of sanity in the Senate:

We will rightly be accused of not being serious about the commitments we've made to the American people with regard to actually enforcing the laws of immigration in America, which many Americans already believe we're not serious about. They don't respect what we've done in the past, and they should not. We have failed, and it's time for us to try to fix it and do better.

Even if the Senate agreed to fund the fence they pretended to want, it's questionable whether it would ever be constructed. According to the Senate bill, we would have to consult with Mexico first.

Kris Koback, a counsel to the Attorney General under John Ashcroft, notes that it can take years just to getting two agencies within the executive branch to consult. Consultations involving local, state, and federal government, with a foreign government that quite obviously does not want a fence and would try to delay it, would drag on forever.

Maybe instead of building a fence, we should let illegal aliens' garbage pile up until it forms a barrier.

Yep. The socialist party is running out of dead white and black folks to vote for them, so Gene's right...gotta drum up more suckers for the voting booth.

Already sent my $150 to minuteman for a foot of fence. If might not hold 'em back, but it does send a message...I'll vote against every politician in my neck of the woods who refused funding.
