    Judge Clears Way for Border Fence

    By ELLIOT SPAGAT, Associated Press Writer Mon Dec 12,10:32 PM ET

    SAN DIEGO - A federal judge on Monday lifted the final legal barrier to completing a border fence meant to thwart illegal immigrants in the southwestern corner of the U.S.
    ADVERTISEMENT
    Anderson Cooper

    The project comprises 14 miles of additional fencing in San Diego. In September,
    Homeland Security Secretary
    Michael Chertoff waived all laws and legal challenges to building the final 3 1/2-mile leg through coastal wetlands to the Pacific Ocean.

    The
    Sierra Club and other environmental groups had argued that Chertoff lacked the authority to do what he did.

    But U.S. District Judge Larry Burns said Congress delegated such authority to Chertoff in June. He noted that the executive branch already had significant jurisdiction over national security and immigration.

    Cory Briggs, an attorney representing the environmental groups, said he was undecided whether to appeal.

    Litigation has stalled the project since it was approved by Congress in 1996. Last year, the California Coastal Commission refused to grant permits, saying damage to sensitive habitats outweighed security benefits.

    In a lawsuit in 2004, the Sierra Club said the project threatened the Tijuana River estuary, home to more than 370 migratory and native birds, six of them endangered.

    The proposal calls for adding two fences to an existing barrier made of Navy landing mats. A maintenance road would be built between the primary and secondary fences, along with lights, sensors and cameras.

    The 2006 Homeland Security budget includes $35 million to cover most of the work.

    The final leg of the fence would cross steep, rugged canyons including "Smuggler's Gulch," a maze of trails once overrun by illegal border crossers. The federal government launched a crackdown in the area in 1994, forcing migrants to cross in more remote area

    great idea. make it tall with razor wire all over the place. BUT...i guarantee if a mexican gets hurt going over the fence, some fucking human rights group will bitch about it.

    Having lived in Yuma for the last 9 years I have only one thing to say.

    Who gives a shit! You would have to build a fence 50 feet high just to put a small dent into this issue, and I don't think many people really understand the issue anyway. We pretend these people are dangerous terrorists, name one person picked up by border patrol that was a wanted terrorist, you think we wouldn't hear about that if they did?! Also, these people just want jobs, I guarantee that if we offered some kind of job based initiative that would allow them to enter the country to work they would jump at it, if they could get America type wages and live in Mexico they would do that in a second. There not taking anyone's jobs away that don't have it coming, if your a highschool graduate that works at Ford making $60,000 a year to do next to nothing (and I know for a fact that's what you guys do) your ripe for the picking. During the summer we have to pick up illegals nearly every day in Search And Rescue, for every 20 we pick up there are at least 2 that are not as lucky, there dead. And this is all because we as American's won't admit that our businesses need these workers to turn a profit and to justify keeping there businesses in this country to begin with.

    While I am glad that this is happening, I agree that its not going to make much of a difference concerning a terrorist. I also agree that if somebody wants to come here bad enough, they will find a way.

    Willy is right. The solution to this has to come from Mexico.

    It's just another expensive feel-good measure that will accomplish jack squat.

    Make your own job dude. You could sell fish bait and with your masters, be a master-baiter.

    As far as mexicans; when I had my manufacturing business I fired all the white workers and kept the mexicans. No excuses, and showed up on time everyday.

    As for the fence.. let the virgin latinas in, the guys gotta climb it.
