New Border Survey Planned 
Do We Have 309 Miles of Fence?

"We already have constructed 309 miles of border fencing along the southwest border." Chertoff, 4/1/08 -- Is this a fence?
American Patrol Report -- April 2
ABP Plans Border Flight
    Yesterday the Department of Homeland Security reiterated its claim that it has completed 309 miles of "fence" on the U.S. / Mexico border. According to border watchdog group American Border Patrol, much of what DHS calls a fence wouldn't stop a five-year-old.
    ABP now reports that it will perform a detailed aerial survey of the border within the next week. ABP is the only group in America that is capable of checking on the actual status of the border fence. Those wishing to help them pay for fuel for the airplane may go here.
