The Greatest Scam on Earth
AP (Always Propaganda) Spreads Fence Nonsense

Associated Press -- April 29 
Its future uncertain, barrier on the border going up quickly
    About 317 miles of the southwest border fence have been built, with plans for another 353 miles by the end of the year. Longer term, there are plans for physical fencing or surveillance and detection technology along the entire 2,000-mile border by 2010.
    The new construction includes completion of a nearly solid stretch from San Diego to Yuma, Ariz.; a new section extending several miles in each direction from Lukeville, Ariz.; additional lengths flanking Nogales, Ariz., and Columbus, N.M.; extension of the current barrier at El Paso; new sections near the Texas border towns of Esperanza, Presidio, Del Rio and Eagle Pass, and a dotted line of fence stretching from Roma to past Brownsville.
    Comment: American Border Patrol reports that as of April 30, the U.S. has fewer than 190 miles of fencing on the Mexican border, not 317 miles. Of that fencing, fewer than 110 miles is new since October 2006 and fewer than nine miles of fencing has been built since mid January, 2008.
