Watch Him Like A Hawk
The Gloves -- And Handcuffs -- Are Off 

American Patrol Report -- November 6  

    With Obama's concurrence, John McCain kept the issue of illegal immigration off the table. Now the disaster called John McCain is behind us and we can talk - and the gloves - and handcuffs - are off.
    DHS Secretary Chertoff has said 670 miles of fencing and vehicle barriers will either be finished or under contract by the end of the Bush Administration on January 20, 2009.
    Next week American Border Patrol will fly the entire border from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific Ocean to see if he is keeping his promise. Two reporters, one from Arizona and one from Texas, have said they will fly along with the crew. They will fly on separate legs.
    ABP will continue its border surveillances after Obama is sworn in to look for any evidence that his new Secretary of Homeland Security has modified border fence construction policy. "There is concern that Obama will let the fence project whither and die and not repair any damage," said Glenn Spencer of American Border Patrol. "We are going to use our Border Hawk M to watch him like a hawk."
    Following next week's survey Spencer will complete a report that links border fence construction to the on-going drug war in Mexico. "There is a growing mountain of evidence that the border fence is having a significant impact on the ability of the cartels to move their poison into the U.S.", Spencer said. "Now is the time to strengthen our border defenses, not weaken them."
