50 yards of fence….yeah, that’ll work:
A civilian border-patrol group said Tuesday that it plans to build two short security fences on a ranch in southern Arizona, the busiest illegal entry point on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Chris Simcox, a leader in the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, said last month that the group would break ground on the fence unless the White House deployed U.S. troops to the border by May 25 and endorsed more secure fencing.
“We are not anticipating that the White House will make any effort in the next 2 1/2 weeks as far as putting troops on the border,” Minuteman spokeswoman Connie Hair said.
The group initially plans to erect two parallel 15-foot steel-mesh fences, which will be from 50 to 150 feet long. An unpaved road will run between the fences.
Hair declined to reveal the location of the fences out of concern the project could be a target for harassment or retaliation.
I guess the idea is that the Mexicans will see the fence and assume there is no way around it, or they will start laughing and that will make it easier to find them.
