After making a strong stance against immigration by authorizing the building of a fence on the Mexican American border, the Senate thought it could get away with not following through and it denied funds to actually start the project!
This rankles me– I mean, we can find millions of dollars to do projects in ones home town, projects ranging from helping out private entities to building bridges and tunnels that are not needed but we can’t find the funds to build a wall to try to stop people from coming into the country illegally?
This is just one more thing that shows me that we’re not really serious about solving the immigration program, it’s just all show. I mean, I don’t understand why the government is so terrified of doing something to cut off the Mexicans with a fence. I mean, are they concerned that the Mexicans will somehow turn into the Palestinians? I don’t think there’s a unity there for that to happen– although some of them do believe that some of California and the Southwest should still be part of Mexico.
Are they worried about the Hispanic vote– those people that are voting illegally? What is the deal here? Why can’t we build a fence? Someone should start some kind of private funding and get this thing accomplished.
