Border Security - High Priority At Last
Spending for security fences, eye-scanning, and other security measures to keep unwanted folks out is moving at a rapid pace. Hooray! Good for the House, the Senate, the President. They's heard us and are listenig. At last. But wait, not here. What? With the exception of a powerless national guard and several thousand over-worked (and concerned about the intimidation from our government and possible jail time for doing their job) border agents, our Senate struts and frets leaving our borders essentailly guarded by retired vets in lawn chairs and sun hats. [Hats off for our grand Minutemen.] On the other hand, Saudi Arabia has no compunction about building a 550-mile fence in the desert to protect its nation, its interests, and its people from insurgents coming across from Iraq.
