Border Fence

December 2006
Scholastic News -- Edition 5/6;12/4/2006, Vol. 74 Issue 10, p2
The article discusses issues on the decision of U.S. President George W. Bush to sign a bill authorizing a 700-mile fence along the U.S. southern border wit Mexico to address the problem of illegal immigration. The upcoming change in congressional control leaves both the fence and what to do in general about illegal immigration as open questions. Critics say a 700-mile fence will only encourage immigrants to go to other sections of the border to enter the U.S. illegally.
