Skip to comments.Arizona launching fundraising website for border fence

Arizona lawmakers are hoping to raise around $50 million for border fencing with a new online public fundraising plan that launches Wednesday despite skepticism from key stakeholders.
Under legislation signed by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer in April, the state would use inmate labor and money pulled in through the website to fence in some of the 82 miles of border between Arizona and Mexico that remain open.
Despite support from top state officials, the initiative is already facing problems. Private land owners and county sheriffs are skeptical that fencing even works and dont plan on contributing, while the federal government may not even allow construction on its land.

Arizona is where the company that runs the red-light traffic cameras is based.
How about we set up some cameras to detect illegal border crossings and ticket the offenders with 35% of the money going to the private company that runs the cameras?
People tell me that the cameras prevent crime.
A Fence/Wall/FreeFireZone needs constant patrolling.
They should make the illegals in prison build it.................
Good for them.
Their neighbors no longer need share in that.
You also want to build it 10 feet north of the border so it’s on state land and not on the Fed’s.
Wall, with lots of razor wire everywhere. Pre-cast concrete sections.
There is a federal claim that’s backed up by the USSC. But you’re right ~ just inside the federally controlled line ~ and all the way across neatly leaving pro-slavery people on the Souf’ side. They can get all the illegal labor they want with no interference. But no gates in that fence!
I love it!!
I really hate when politicians say the fence will cover some areas, when talking about a border fence. It should cover the ENTIRE length of the border...it can be done.
Big moat, deep moat, filled with irritable sea bass with frikin laser beams on their heads. Or you can go with CubanoAmerican crocodiles.
That website is:
I just donated $100.
Even though there is disagreement as to whether or not a fence will be as effective as hoped, the more money this effort receives on its first day (today), the louder the message that Arizona's tough stance on illegal immigration is popular across the U.S.
Is the website operational yet?
Thank you for the link, I tried a search and didn’t see one. Very much appreciate the link and suspect that the media will try to hide it as much as possible.
