When Democrats Aren't Railing Against "Otherizing" and Ginning Up a "Climate of Fear" and an "Us Vs. Them" Mentality, They're Giddily Profiting From It | Main | Proposed Democratic Resolution: Be It Resolved That Global Warming Is Going to Turn Women Into Whores and Coochmongers

Immigration Bill Has More Fake "Fence" Crap In It

The US government does not want a border fence built; the political class does not want a border fence built; the media class, virtually indistinguishable from the political class, does not want a border fence built.

On the other hand, 75% of the public does want a border fence built.

Obviously, the political/media class wins, as usual.

Even if a law required building a fence -- set specific requirements of how many feet of fencing must be constructed per month -- the government would not build it. They would spend endless hours pretending to "plan" the fence or study it for environmental impacts.

So that's what they'd do if the law says that a fence has to be built.

What will they do if the law doesn't even require a fence, but only the development of a "Fencing Strategy"?

Bear in mind, "no fence at all" is a perfectly allowable option in the range of possible "Fencing strategies" one might develop.

The whole thing is a con to deliver amnesty but convince people it's not amnesty.

And as many have said, the public would be willing to entertain the possibility of a mass-amnesty contingent on real border enforcement, including a fence.

But the amnestias simply refuse that. They are committed to the same position they've always held, Amnesty Forever and Amnesty Only.
