Skip to comments.Cain Proposes Electrified Border Fence
Posted on 10/15/2011 4:18:53 PM PDT by VinL
Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Saturday that part of his immigration policy would be to build an electrified fence on the countrys border with Mexico that could kill people trying to enter the country illegally...
Mr. Cain added that he also would consider using military troops with real guns and real bullets on the border to stop illegal immigration.
The remarks were among the most pointed yet by Mr. Cain about illegal immigration, and they come as he is enjoying a surge in national political polls on the back of his victory in a recent Florida straw poll..
It is not the first time that Mr. Cain has floated the idea of an electrified fence. He has told the story many times of a caller to his former radio show who chastised him for talking about building a border fence, saying that such an idea was impractical.
Its going to be 20 feet high. Its going to have barbed wire on the top. Its going to be electrified. And theres going to be a sign on the other side saying, It will kill you Warning. At an earlier rally, on the campus of Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville, Tenn., he added that the sign would be written in English and in Spanish.
This nation has always been a nation with wide open doors, Mr. Cain said at the second rally. We want to make it easy for people to come through the front door. And were going to shut off the back door so you dont have to sneak into America.

You betcha! Put those wind turbines to some GOOD use!
The president needs to communicate to Mexico that their people aren’t welcome here illegally. None have done that.
Build giant moats and fill them with lots of sharks that have fricken laser beams on their heads. Ohhhhh, laser beams.
I hope they power it with coal plants just to piss off more Rat party drones.
Works for me
If they have photos of Cain DOING Bongo the Monkey I’m STILL voting for him.
I’ll roll naked over broken glass 2 do it.
Okay, how this would be done (logistically and politically) I have no idea, but **FIST BUMP** to Mr. Cain for having the gonads to say it out loud!
Powered by a coal fired plant hopefully.
What's needed is for the border patrol being allowed to shoot crossers, and for there to be serious sanctions for illegals caught in this country, and for the people who employ them.
More political ploys from Mister Gimmick!
Cain is one funny guy.
Guard towers every 500 meters or so with robot controlled .50cals, Infrared targeting...anything that moves gets lead poisoning. After a while the piles and stench will make it clear...NO TRESPASSING!
We also need a coast to coast, border to border immigration sweep, with prison time for illegal alien employers. We’re already invaded by millions, just a fence won’t do it.
so...what’s the problem?
I still haven’t heard anyone explain how you can build a fence on the Rio Grande River.
“It is silly and nonsensical to behave in this manner.”
The problem Republicans have had over the last twenty years is that there are too many of you.
