Construction Begins on $57 Million San Diego Border Fence

Click to Read

Construction Begins on $57 Million San Diego Border Fence Scrapers and bulldozers began filling a deep canyon Friday to make way for a border fence in the southwestern corner of the United States after 12 years of planning, environmental reviews and legal challenges. The 3.5 mile stretch extends from a state park on an oceanfront cliff through a canyon known as Smuggler's Gulch. At a cost of about $16 million a mile, the fence will be far more expensive than other fences on the 1,952-mile border with Mexico — the average cost along the entire border is $2 million to $3 million a mile.

It's about time. Now if the States would just arrest the Illegal Aliens for breaking into the USofA uninvited, and prosecute them, return them to the border, and give them a slight shove . . . .

we should send some of that money to the schools of texas so they can implement counseling, security and other things needed to prevent teachers from carrying handguns!

Well people aren't interested in real solutions, so we're building a giant, ludicrously expensive fence and calling it compromise.

Yeah, that would go over. I agree though.

It really is a silly project. If we just got rid of free emergency room care, education for the children of illegal immigrants, and the minimum wage, this wouldn't be a problem to begin with.
