Politicians Renege on Promise to Secure the U.S.-Mexico Border

President Bush's proposed budget will reduce border security funding by 33 percent, according to the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.

The Minutemen have organized a letter-writing campaign to tell Congress to fund the completion of a fence along the length of the U.S.-Mexico border, "using $3 billion (Bush) promised in October."

Open Borders advocates are dismissive of the idea of a fence at the border.

"Show me a 50-foot fence," Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano is said to have quipped, "and I'll show you a 51-foot ladder."

Even the Minutemen advocate stationing 20,000 National Guardsmen along the fenceline to enforce the border.
