News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

McCain calls virtual border fence in Arizona a 'disgrace'

Published: 03.03.2008

PHOENIX - Republican presidential candidate John McCain said Monday that a high-tech "virtual fence" meant to secure Arizona's porous border against illegal immigration is a "disgrace."

"And all of us who know the need to secure the border are very disappointed," he told reporters in Phoenix. "It's so disappointing when Americans — one of their highest priorities is to secure our borders — that we have a major corporation that gets a major contract and it turns into be a failed effort."

The virtual fence near Sasabe, Ariz., is part of a national plan to secure the U.S.-Mexico border with physical barriers and high-tech detection capabilities.

McCain said fence contractor Boeing Corp. did not consult with states, the U.S. Border Patrol and other agencies as it spent money on the 28-mile array of radars and surveillance cameras.
