Umm who is going to referee between the various states and the border communities to decide where the fence gets built?

OF course the Feds have to do this, it is a muti state issue! I love this, 1st the States scream for the Feds to do something, NOW they complain because the Feds are doing it!

All the State want here is another Federal Taxpayer slush fund they can tap for what ever they feel like. If we are going to build a fence, lets build a fence, not let some Leftist Government decide he/she needs the Fence funds for Illegal Alien encounter group therapy.

The Department of Homeland Security?

I see what you're saying. Is there a way (realistically) to make "Federal Fence Funds" be used solely for building fences, e.g., "earmark" the money? I can see the states needing federal funding and justifying it on the fact that such a fence would protect the entire country, not just those states. However, I think the local communities and the DHS would know best where the fences are needed. I.e., do we really want some senator from, say Illinois, telling Texas where to build the fences?
