link this article talks about how homeland security wants to run a giant fence along the border to mexico. okay, now i sympathize with the border patrol, but they've got an impossible job. no amount of fencing is going to stop migration across the border. i mean, come on people, can you imagine the conversation in dc? "we've got a border problem" "we've always have had a border problem" "well, now with 9-11, we've got a great excuse to crack down. what should we do?" "how about a laser-guided missle system launched from roving ai-controlled tanks?" "no good. the president saw terminator 3" "i know! how about we build a huge fence around the entire country! that'll keep the foreign bastards out!" "hmmmm" a giant fence? genius. now, i know project "giant fence around the country" was actually started in the clinton administration, but it was a bad idea then, and it still is. i guess basically what i'm trying to say is that it's time to look over our immigration policy again and decide if building a giant fence around our country is what's best for the nation in the long run. whatever happened to "give me your tired, your poor..."?
