WASHINGTON - The Senate voted to build 370 miles of triple-layered fencing along the Mexican border Wednesday, and clashed over citizenship for millions of men and women who live in the United States illegally.
Amid increasingly emotional debate over election-year immigration legislation, senators voted 83-16 to add fencing and 500 miles of vehicle barriers along the southern border. It marked the first significant victory in two days for conservatives seeking to place their stamp on the contentious measure.
The prospects were less favorable for their attempt to strip out portions of the legislation that could allow citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants and create new guest worker programs.
SINCE WE HAVE TO EXCERPT MSNBC YOU CAN READ THE REST HERE
Anyone wants to venture a guess on what type of fencing this will be? Chain link? Razor wire? Decorative? (HeeHee)
I wonder if Halliburton will be hired in a no-bid contract to construct it.
It's good to see the House is standing their ground despite the pressure.
