What happened to the border fence? From GrassTopsUSA:
According to The Washington Times; on December 17, Congress "passed a giant new spending bill that undermines current plans for a U.S.-Mexico border fence..."
You read that right! Nancy Pelosi and her gang of liberals in Washington D.C., under the cover of darkness, GUTTED THE BORDER FENCE.
And conservative legislators are hopping mad.
According to Congressman Duncan Hunter, this omnibus spending bill technically eliminates any requirement for "physical barriers or fencing along the border.""This action basically repeals the Secure Fence Act (of 2006) and undermines past efforts to secure our nation's borders."
House Minority Leader John Boehner said:"The fact that this was buried in a bloated, 3,500-page
omnibus speaks volumes about the Democrats' unserious approach on
border security and illegal immigration. Gutting the Secure
Fence Act will make our borders less secure, but it's consistent with
the pattern of behavior we've seen all year from this majority." [Emphasis Mine]
And Congressman Peter King (R-NY) commented:"This is either a blatant oversight or a deliberate attempt
to disregard the border security of our country. As it's currently
written, the omnibus language guts the Secure Fence Act almost
entirely. Quite simply, it is unacceptable."
But that's not the whole story.Not only did Nancy Pelosi and her gang gut the border fence, this monstrous omnibus spending bill ALSO GIVES 10 MILLION OF YOUR HARD-EARNED TAX DOLLARS TO ATTORNEYS OF ILLEGAL ALIENS!
According to CNS News:"House Republican Whip Roy Blunt of Missouri said the bill
is full of 'misguided' policy decisions: 'On one page, for instance,
you will find a set of new restrictions on the construction of our
security fence along the border; on another, $10 million in 'emergency' funding for attorneys of illegal immigrants.'" [Emphasis Mine]
"'Along with those, you'll even find language gutting a Senate-passed provision encouraging English in the workplace.
And as we continue to cull through the text, that may prove to be just
the tip of the iceberg,' Blunt complained." [Emphasis Mine]

President George W. Bush, and the entire leadership (Democrat and
Republican) of the House and the Senate.
Tell them that their plans to gut the border fence under the cover
of darkness did not go unnoticed. Tell our elected leaders that the
American people have spoken and we want our borders secured ! Tell them
that the security of the United States is not for sale to special
interests who want open borders. Demand that they make it their first
order of business in 2008 to fund that fence!
