Senate Approves 600 Million For Border: But Where's The Fence?
reprint from www.backupamerica.org
It was announced with great fanfare by the mainstream media that the Senate has approved an additional 600 million dollars in order to reportedly secure the U.S. Mexico border on a voice vote.
Just in time for the upcoming November elections.
The funds provided are to be utilized in the hiring of an additional 1,500 government employees (whose salaries and benefits will escalate over time, and is once again expanding the costs of government rather than reducing it) and more toys for the monitoring of the border with unmanned aircraft and the like for the defense contractors and Silicon Valley.
But where's the sums for the fence, the true security which is needed at least along the Arizona border which encompasses over 300 miles of open desert?
Iit would literally take agents arm in arm to secure that desert adequately against those new and improved all terrain vehicles those large scale hard drug dealers and auto theft rings have been able to purchase with their massive profits PROGRESSIVELY.
The pickup trucks crossing with the loads of Mexico Gold are a mere drop in the bucket, and don't have the speed or familiarity with those stretches of desert that those repeat large scale drug operations do.
I'll bet the cost for four to five foot titanium spikes would be far less than the costs of this newest "solution" to the open border situation would be.
And far less likely to potentially add billions more in those fees and costs for that other group of government contractors, the illegal immigrant "civil rights" lawyers and PAC organizations at the U.S. taxpayers expense who are now forced to literally pay for their own abuse in many of these illegal, in more ways than one, civil rights cases.
Mr. Obama heralded the bill and is expected to sign it on Friday, again using this ineffective and costly "solution," which has been tried numerous times before throughout the decades to push his "immigration reform" agenda and that of the globalists serving on the Hill from both the mainstream political parties who dominate our elective and appointed offices across the board both at the federal and state levels.
A "high tech" physical fence is what is needed here, not a virtual fence that can be turned off and on at will at the flip of a few switches and monitored once again by government contractors that just might be tempted to look the other way for a cut of this profitable Mexican commerce.
The sums for this Silicon Valley and taxpayer funded stimulus it was announced is going to be funded by an increase in the taxes levied on personnel agencies that provide foreign labor.
Which, of course, simply means that their fees and costs for those foreign workers will be passed on to them, making it more than likely that the U.S. will be seeing an increase in European immigrants whose countries have higher currency rates, than those from poorer countries, which just goes to show that the Democrats are not the party of the "common" people they claim to be, but also identical to that other branch of the Globalist Party, the NeoCon Republican wing, in sheep's clothing.
Or will simply give some of those 1,500 jobs for their party members, the ones most likely that will flip the switches on those virtual fences, or create then another agency or panel to investigate and monitor the monitoring of the virtual fencing after the next high profile rancher's death occurs.
So again I and literally tens of thousands of other present and former border state residents, and others throughout the nation ask this Congress and this Administration - WWHERE'S THE FENCE?
