Support for a fence along the border between the US and Mexico is picking up steam.
A once-radical idea to build a 2,000-mile steel-and-wire fence on the U.S.-Mexican border is gaining momentum amid warnings that terrorists can easily sneak into the country.
In Congress, a powerful Republican lawmaker this week proposed building such a fence across the entire border and two dozen other lawmakers signed on. And via the Internet, a group called weneedafence.com has raised enough money to air TV ads warning that the border is open to terrorists.
Colin Hanna of weneedafence.com says "there is incredible momentum on this issue," fueled by the specter of another Sept. 11. His group aired TV ads in Washington, D.C., this fall and plans more next year.

The fence is the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. What kind of a country are we becoming? There is so much racism against hispanics. I hope more come just to spite these damn racists in this country.

Yeah there's so much racism against Hispanics. We hear of them being beaten up and lynched everyday.
The only racism going on is by employers taking advantage of the illegal aliens by not paying them a fair wage because they're not suppose to be here. In turn this drives down wages across the board.
The only one against the border fence are racists who want the exploitation to continue because no one will deal with the problem because there is so much money going into peoples pockets at the expense of a slave class of people.

THE PROBLEM IS THAT THEY WANT TO BUILD THE WALL RIGHT BY THE MAIN ROAD THAT TRAVELS EAST TO WEST THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY IN TEXAS. (US EXPRESSWAY 83). WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THEY DECIDE TO BUILD THE FENCE ALONG I-10 FROM EL PASO TO BEAUMONT? THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS ALREADY STARTING THE FENCE IN ROMA,TX. THEY ALREADY HAVE BULL DOZERS AND THEY ALREADY STARTED CLEARING BRUSH. ITS HAPPENING PEOPLE
