Urgent: The best news on the immigration debate this week
Dear friend of WeNeedAFence.com:
The best news on the immigration debate this week did not come from the President in his speech to the nation on Monday (although he did include his strongest support to date for a fence in his remarks). The best news is that Senator Sessions (R-AL) will introduce an amendment to the Senate Immigration Bill that will call for over 700 miles of triple fencing and vehicle barriers -- and that Senate Majority Leader Frist will support the Sessions amendment!
Here are the basic details, taken from an email from Senator Frist:
"One such amendment that will be introduced by Senator Jeff Sessions would meet the demand for real fencing, constructing an additional 370 miles of triple-layered fencing and 500 miles of vehicle barriers along the areas of our border with Mexico that are most often used by smugglers and illegal aliens. This fencing is to be constructed immediately and will be completed within two years of the passage of this border security legislation. This fencing mileage, combined with provisions in the bill on the Senate floor that authorize other technologies asked for by the border patrol to keep our borders fully surveyed so they can intercept those who cross the border as quickly as possible, will go far to enhancing our border security and keeping America safer. I strongly support this amendment."
Please call your senator immediately at both Washington and District offices to urge support for this amendment!!!
Please let me know what reaction you get, if any.
Colin A. Hanna, President
