Laura Meckler -- Wall Street Journal -- February 1  
Defining Border Security Key to Talks
GOP Senators Fear a New Illegal Influx, and Democrats Worry a Vague Bill Would Delay Citizenship
    How to determine whether the U.S. border with Mexico is secure has emerged as a central battle among senators writing an overhaul of immigration laws.
    The senators working on the legislation, four Democrats and four Republicans, say that many of the 11 million people living in the nation illegally should have the chance to become U.S. citizens. But their proposal says that opportunity is "contingent on securing the border'' first, and that security provisions must be "complete.'' They disagree, however, over how to measure those goals.
WSJ's Laura Meckler should talk to Glenn Spencer
    The GOP Senators are right --- a new amnesty would bring a surge across the border. Democrats are wrong --- a system to measure border security could be in place in three months.
    Glenn Spencer sent this e-mail to Laura Meckler, the author of the WSJ story early this morning.
    He asked her to call him about the ABP's plan to measure border security.
    Please send an e-mail to Laura Meckler ( laura.meckler@wsj.com ) asking her to contact Glenn Spencer.
    That's all --- just call him. TEL: 520-803-7703
