Border Fence Under Attack
Will Obama Tear It Down?

American Patrol Report -- December 27
Border fence cuts off smuggling routes in Arizona.

    The New Mexico State University online newspaper Frontera NorteSur reports that construction of the fence on the Mexican border is the target of "reinvigorated opposition from border residents, elected officials, indigenous communities, human rights activists, and environmentalists."
    According to the report, Texas State Senator Shapleigh would like to see the new president, Obama, "tear down this wall."
    In Washington, Rep. Raul Grijalva is pushing legislation that would repeal the DHS authority to waive laws for border fencing.
    "Many people are attacking the border fence but we hear little to nothing as to how well it’s working," said Glenn Spencer of American Border Patrol.
    "The DEA recently reported that Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations (DTOs) represent the greatest organized crime threat to the United States, but no one seems to want to connect national security dots to the border fence," Spencer added.
    Spencer said ABP will present the results of its two-year study of the border fence at a special news conference in Washington, D.C. on January 15. "If the media report what we have to say, I think you will hear the cry "finish the fence," he added.
