SENATORS GET OFF THE POLITICAL FENCE

THEY VOTE 80-19 TO BUILD
700 MILES OF DOUBLE-WALL FENCE
ON U.S.-MEXICAN BORDER

The Senate just finished passing the House of Representative's fence bill.

It will now go to President Bush who has promised to sign it.

This is a stand-alone bill. It was not bundled with any compromises, any increases in immigration, any new guestworker visas or any amnesty.


A lot of the Senators such as Sen. Martinez (R-FL) who so vociferously (cries of protest) spoke against this bill ended up voting for it.

Why? Because they knew that regular voting citizens like you would hold them accountable.
ANTI-FENCE LAST NIGHT but switched to PRO-FENCE
Boxer (D-CA) Carper (D-DE) Clinton (D-NY)
Dodd (D-CT) Harkin (D-IA) Kohl (D-WI)
Obama (D-IL) Schumer (D-NY)

VOTING NO ON THE FENCE LAST NIGHT
Akaka (D-HI) Bingaman (D-NM) Cantwell (D-WA)
Chafee (R-RI) Durbin (D-IL) Feingold (D-WI)
Inouye (D-HI) Jeffords (I-VT) Kerry (D-MA)
Lautenberg (D-NJ) Leahy (D-VT) Levin (D-MI)
Lieberman (D-CT) Menendez (D-NJ) Murray (D-WA)
Reed (D-RI) Reid (D-NV) Salazar (D-CO) Sarbanes (D-MD)

Hats off to http://www.weneedafence.com/, the Minutemen and a number of other smaller groups who really championed this rather obscure cause in the early stages. Washington Times

I've always said a fence is the first step in protecting the border........But doubt it will ever get done.

The bill will be signed by Bush, but both parties will find a way to keep it from being implemented.......Mark my words.

Money for a few hundred miles appears to be in the pipeline, but the Senate so far has not shown signs of being willing to provide all the money to build all 700 miles.

Nonetheless, there will be plenty of money to get started. As this fence begins to be erected at and near the populated settlements along the Mexican border -- and as it clearly slows the illegal traffic -- we can hope that steps of success will breed more interest and more money for more fence in Congress next year. numbersusa.com
