The author comments on the decision to build a fence on the border between the U.S. and Mexico in response to the problems faced by the U.S. regarding undocumented immigrants from Mexico. The Secure Fence Act passed by the U.S. Congress to prevent terrorists and other unlawful aliens from entering the country might result in an actual fence being built along sizable stretches of the Rio Grande.
