If Bush put more effort into border security, and less into the worldwide version of AmeriCorps, we would all be a whole lot better off.

This is what the fence in a lot of San Diego looks like. It's 8' high, made of rusty corrogated Viet Nam era surplus military runway matting sheets. The corrogations are horizontal, and form toe holds for easy climbing. The fence actually helps the smugglers, by shielding the mass movements of illegals from the eyes of the Border Patrol. Spotters watch the BP SUVs drive over a distant hill, and then they make their calls, knowing it will be an hour or more before the BP returns to that area. The illegals jump over, and run a few hundred yards into thick brush, gullies etc and are home free.

I do think that the feds are working on this, and the super in Arizona said on c-span that he thinks they are almost there. It has always looked to me like a very complicated set of problems that require multiple initiatives.
