I oppose a fence too. Too expensive and will not work. Hell, illegals would end up working on it.

WE can speculate all day/week/year long about this. Perry’s views on the border concern me. Just as I find myself starting to like him, this keeps coming back up.

I get the “it would be ineffective and too expensive” - but without some viable and “better” alternative, then what do we have?

Maybe if his option is to much more heavily arm the border patrol, increase its numbers and training, and to supplement with our armed forces - then he has a legitimate view. But what are his alternatives?

He has a military background. He says a fence would be ineffective. What does he offer as a better solution?

A military commander would have a better alternative before rejecting what he saw as only a partial solution.

That would mean Rick Perry is Achilles, which is a bit of a stretch.

To say the least.
