Border Consensus Plan Proposed
Measuring for Success

Plan calls for reduction of illegal immigration to levels last seen during Eisenhower administration -- and a way to verify that goal has been reached.
American Patrol -- March 1
    American Patrol has learned that a plan is being circulated amongst immigration reform groups to define what border security means and establish a way of measuring it. According to the plan, a new organization based in Tucson, Arizona, would call for a 98% reduction in illegal immigration and ask candidates to agree to the goal.
    The next step would be to use a variety of sources, including technology and volunteers such as Minutemen, to check the border to see if the goal is being achieved. "I have seen the plan and it makes a lot of sense," said Glenn Spencer of American Patrol.
    Spencer said the plan should be welcomed by John McCain who called for border enforcement before immigration reform. "This plan adds flesh to the border enforcement first philosophy," Spencer added.
