Build The Border Fence!

Absent from most political rhetoric espousing intentions to secure our southern border is the one tangible form of border security necessary as a starting point to create lasting immigration reform: the border fence.

Consider San Diego. In 1996, Congress passed a bill to require construction of a double-layered fence along the coast. Despite completion of only 14 miles of the proposed 60 miles, apprehension of illegal aliens fell by 95%.

Consider Israel. Pursuant to the construction of a double-layer fence with a security zone in the middle – similar to the San Diego fence, “suicide attacks perpetrated by Arab terrorists declined by well over 90%.”

Consider the cost. Despite Israeli expenditures of $1.8 million per mile to construct their border fence, calculating the cost based on $9 million per mile (as estimated by DHS for the cost of the San Diego fence), a 700 mile double-layered fence would cost roughly $6 billion to construct. Given that, over the lifespan of each illegal alien whom is prevented from entering the United States, American taxpayers save $700,000 per individual, the cost to build the fence to ensure American sovereignty is negligible.
