Overcoming Propaganda-People who LIVE on the border, US side don't want the fence

from South Texas Chisme.

Thus far, protest has been incessant.

Those voices of dissent range from the farmer worried about losing access to his irrigation pumps on the Rio Grande, to the Minuteman who thinks ground sensors and all elements of “virtual fencing” are ineffective; from the Democrat who calls the fence a colossal waste of money, to the Republican who says not nearly enough of it is being built; from the conservationist crying out for the ocelot, to the businessperson worried it could create bad blood with the Mexican business community.

As the debate continues, rumors and unanswered questions continue to fly, but certain elements now have been established.

By the end of 2008, DHS plans to have built 370 miles of fencing and 200 miles of vehicle barriers along the U.S. Mexico border. (View multimedia "Border Fence: Day 1")
