Hangs in Balance
Border watchers expect 2006 to be
the make-or-break year for illegal immigration reform.. "If
I were running the open- borders campaign, my primary goal would
be to kill the fence and continue the current enforcement strategy,
giving in by buying a little more technology and a few more people,"
said Glenn Spencer of American Border Patrol. "They think
if they can just hold us off for a few more years, it will be
too late to save our sovereignty," Spencer added. Border
traffic, low for the holidays, is expected to increase next week
and ABP will be there with a new border reporting campaign. (Get
