Southwest Border Fence Construction Progress
As of June 24, 2011, CBP has completed 649 miles of pedestrian and vehicle
fencing along the Southwest Border. A total of 350 miles of primary
pedestrian fence has been constructed, while the final total of vehicle fence
(the project was officially completed on January 8, 2010) was 299 miles.

GAO: only 129 miles of the 2,000 mile Southwest Border
are under "full control" of the Border Patrol

The Secure Fence Act, signed by President George W. Bush on October 26, 2006,
has met with much opposition. In October 2007, environmental groups and concerned citizens
filed a restraining order hoping to halt the construction of the fence, set to be built between
the United States and Mexico. The act mandates that the fence be built by December 2008.
Ultimately, the United States seeks to put fencing around the 1,945-mile (3,130 km) border,
but the act requires only 700 miles (1,100 km) of fencing. DHS secretary Michael Chertoff
has bypassed environmental and other oppositions with a waiver that was granted to him
by Congress in Section 102 of the act, which allows DHS to avoid any conflicts t
hat would prevent a speedy assembly of the fence.

while there are people in our world, opposed to FREEDOM,
who believe that to die a martyr's death, is their highest calling,
security is #1

our country is only as strong as its weakest link
the open border, and 30 million illegals in our country, attest to that

we must secure Southwest Border IMMEDIATELY
use remaining Stimulus, no matter how much it costs;
first line of defense

TO RECAP 2006
The House voted for the second time in a year to erect a fence
along a third of the U.S.-Mexican border, part of a Republican effort
to keep illegal immigration an issue before voters.
A new 700 miles of double-layered fencing won House approval
on a 283-138 vote,
on 09/20/2006 The Senate voted, and unanimously, approved:
another bill specifying 700 miles of double-layered fencing
