Work on building a fence of approx. 2000 miles on the US-Mexican border was started in 2006. It was scheduled for completion by 2011 but the latest estimates say the fence will not be completed until another 6-7 years. Politics are involved here as with everything else. More illegal immigrants = more potential voters for the Left sometime down the road and more cheap labor for everybody else.
..... It took the U.S. a tad more than eight years from the announcement in 1961 to put a man on the moon. Now we can't build a fence in seven?
The long string of delays renders a fence meaningless. Seven years, the exact remaining duration of two Obama administration terms, suggests that the president is delaying the fence while preparing to enact a comprehensive immigration reform centered around amnesty for illegals.
That's not border control. That's politics. And it leaves our border unguarded at a bad time........
