The 370 mi includes fence already constructed. so the final number of miles could be much less.

Actally it's not all that smart to build a fence that long. Many desolate rural areas would be much better served using a combination of patrols, video monitoring and sensors.

Bush signed the REAL ID Act which gives the DHS the authority to waive environmental restrictions to complete parts of the fence that money was already appropriated for. In addition, he supported Sensenbrenner's House Bill for the 700 miles of fencing. The Senate is whining that the fence will cost too much and will "send the wrong message to our neighbors". I am disappointed that they reduced the mileage on the fencing, but we can't blame Bush for that one.
