Skip to comments.Sen. Landrieu Says S. Dakota Borders Canada While Calling Border Fence 'Dumb'
Posted on 06/13/2013 11:33:13 AM PDT by MissesBush
While attempting to attack an amendment to the Gang of Eight immigration bill that would require a fence be built along Mexicos border with the U.S. before legalization, Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) made a significant geographical gaffe. Landrieu, who represents Louisiana in the U.S. Senate, was trying to undermine the amendment Sen. John Thune (R-SD) offered. In doing so, she tried to argue Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was more qualified to talk about border issues than Thune because McCain represents Arizona.
A smart fence, which is what Senator McCain and I want to build--since hes from Arizona, I think he knows more about this than the Senator from South Dakota who only has a border with Canada and that is quite different, Landrieu said.
South Dakota does not share a border with Canada. It does, however, share borders with North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Minnesota, Nebraska and Iowa.
Landrieu went on to argue that the 700-mile border double-fence that Congress passed into law a few years ago is a dumb fence. She said she would be voting against Thunes amendment requiring the implementation of current law because of she thinks the fence is dumb.
So I would be voting against Senator Thunes amendment because Im not going to waste taxpayer money on a dumb fence, and thats what his amendment would be, Landrieu said. We need to build a smart fence and a fence is not just a physical structure which could be built out of a variety of different materials with or without barbed wire on the top.
Thune came back to floor after Landrieus comments to note that the Louisiana Democrat actually voted for the dumb fence a few years ago. I would say in response to my colleague from Louisiana that we all voted for this, Thune said.

South Dakota: The Riviera of the Dakotas!
No more riprap for you, stupid Landrieu woman ~ GAD
You expect a collectivist to be wise? That’s not wise.
Damn those Canadians from the providence of North Dakota!
First and foremost McCain does not know shiite muslim about anything except drooling.
* Province, not providence.
If the combined intellect of the entire House and Senate were converted to electricity it wouldn’t light a 20 watt bulb.
One doesn’t have to listen porkey Sen. Landrieu to realize she’s dumb as a rock.
All very good points.
Let us not forget that the fence is to stop drug and other contraband smuggling. Keeping out “future citizens” is only part of it’s value.
with nodaks oil boom they may very well be jiggy with the providence
at least it won’t tip over like Guam.
Wondering if she has EVER read a US map! what stupidity.
Oh, and he is a doctor and very conservative.
North Dakota - it’s South Dakota’s buffer zone against the wild hordes of Canadia.
remember she represents 1% of the senate and is obviously dumber than a bag of rocks. She is one of many unfortunately but in her case she opened her mouth and removed all doubt.
