Huh??? John Cornyn Says *Forget the Border Fence, It was Only A Symbolic Gesture, Anyway*

4 October 2006 at 10:55:11 PM

I'm against the border fence and thought it was a colossally stupid waste of money, among other things. But Ole John Cornyn was sure all for it, except he and KBH didn't like it that they couldn't specify WHERE it would go exactly (Maybe they have some buds who would have their land taken by Department of Homeland Security).  But it seems pretty dang ridiculous for him to say, now that it has passed, that it was all, basically a big joke. What, to fool the gullible Republicans back in the state?

Sen. John Cornyn, R-San Antonio and a key liaison to the White House on immigration, said Tuesday that 700 miles of fencing approved by Congress will probably not be built because of a lack of money and other practical considerations. “It’s one thing to authorize. It’s another thing to actually appropriate the money and do it,” he told reporters.

Cornyn defended the Senate vote for the fencing, saying that it was an important symbolic gesture to show that Congress is serious about protecting the border.

Oh... It Was Only Symbolic. So Cornyn Doesn't Really Take His Vote SERIOUSLY, he just votes for the symbolic value of things.

P.S. Seems that people along the border don't want the fence either, but for other reasons..

"What a goofy idea," said Mayor Chad Foster of Eagle Pass
