ABSTRACT
The author discusses his views on the importance of building reinforced fencing along the Southern border of the U.S. He comments on the decision of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to build only 370 miles of fencing along the border, not the 854 miles required by the Secure Fence Act. In his opinion, the decision not to build fencing as dictated by law can serve only to demonstrate that the government is not serious about securing its borders and enforcing the nation's immigration laws.
