Sounds Like a Plan To Me

Minuteman leader pushes border fence

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- If the government doesn't build security fencing along the Mexico border, Minuteman border watch leader Chris Simcox says he and his supporters will.

Simcox, whose civilian watch group opposes illegal immigration, said Wednesday he was sending an ultimatum to President Bush to deploy military reserves to the Arizona border by May 25 or his supporters will break ground for their own building project.

"We're going to show the federal government how easy it is to build these security fences, how inexpensively they can be built when built by private people and free enterprise," Simcox said.

A security fence erected along the US/Mexico border, funded by private money. Illegal aliens and drug runners would be prevented from entering our country. All those evil guns Mexican President Fox is so concerned about would be kept out of Mexico. What's not to love?

Honestly, who could possibly object to such a proposal? I mean, besides Ted Kennedy's "Open Borders Brigade" and the millions of downtrodden Mexicans they're looking to import and indoctrinate as future Democratic voters as quickly as possible.

Congress has been debating immigration reform for several months. One bill, approved by the U.S. House in December, calls for nearly 700 miles of fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border. The fence proposal has angered Mexicans, with President Vicente Fox calling it "shameful."

Hey, Vicente Presidente!

This goes without saying (like, that's ever stopped me before), but for Vicente Fox to call any such proposal "shameful" is nothing short of the world's largest flaming ball of hypocritical buttnugget, coming from the leader of the country where illegal aliens are arrested, robbed, raped, jailed, and deported (or simply shot on sight) by armed agents of the government.

What's Spanish for "asshat"? Culosombrero?
