The Fix is in, its either open borders with Perry or open borders with Hussein.

What the anti-Perry people don’t tell you is the rest of the story, that Perry wants “boots on the ground”, National Guard troops on the border, because that is more effective than a fence.

The fence is useless. We need land mines and/or troops on the border.

I'm in the minority here, but “The Fence” is a terrible, statist idea. Not only will it be a big government boondoggle, the border is private property and many of the owners not only do not WANT the fence, but they own property on the other side.

Flame away.

You have no clue what it would take to build a fence a long the TX-Mexico border!

It's 1200 to 1500 miles long...and all kinds of terrain. Have you ever been to Big Bend?

It would be a stupid waste of $$$...and wouldn't work!

A very important issue and he's wrong on it.

Mexico should build the fence. No fence, no more guns.

Rick Perry says No to border fence? Then I say No to Rick Perry.

Are you in the Fence Construction or in the Ladder Rental business?

Watch how fast illegal aliens can climb over, cut through and dig under a worthless $3 Billion Border Fence

The way to stop illegals is by patrolling the border .... Like Perry did with the Texas National Guard and the Texas Rangers.

You are not the only one. A lot of us already have and for many other reasons besides the fence.

They’re already digging under where there is fence. What good is a fence?

Today, we learn that Rick Perry won't defend the border and Sarah Palin blasts the political class in Washington.

Hmmm, who would I vote for? I wouldn't have to think long.

Im going to be honest here, a Border fence would indeed take a long time to build and at the end of the day it would not work.

It is not particular difficult to get over or around a stationary barrier. If we are going to deal with illegal aliens we got to make their life uncomfortable and unprofitable while there here.

This is a job best accomplished by our States who have both the legal means and the on the ground presence & know how to do so.

That being said, I’m not sure what Perry’s policy is.
