"Where's the BEEF?"
DHS To Break 370-Mile Fence Promise? 

American Border Patrol -- October 4

Operation BEEF Report
    Following an aerial survey of the border completed last Thursday, American Border Patrol reports that the Department of Homeland Security has now completed the construction of 126 miles of border fence, far short of the 370 miles promised by the end of the year. The survey, conducted as part of Operation B.E.E.F. (Border Enforcement Evaluation First), found that 18 miles of new fencing had been constructed since July 29, the date of its last survey. "At the rate of nine miles of new fencing per month, it is difficult to believe that DHS will be able to build 244 miles of fence to reach their goal of 370 miles in less than three months," said Glenn Spencer, head of ABP.
    The ABP survey, conducted from a specially equipped Cessna TU-206, covered the border from Fabens Texas to the Pacific Ocean at San Diego.
    Most of the new fencing is single-layer, not double-layer as specified by the original Secure Fence Act of 2006. The requirement for double-layered fence was removed by a Senate amendment sponsored by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-TX). As part of the amendment Hutchinson promised that 370 miles of new fence would be built by December 31, 2008.
