A press release from Senator Jim DeMint’s website:
Today, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) introduced the â€œComplete the Fence Actâ€ that will require the completion of 700 miles of reinforced pedestrian fencing along the nationâ€™s southern border by December 31, 2010. The bill also requires the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to report to Congress by June 2009 on fence construction progress and how it plans to complete the full fence by the 2010 deadline.
DeMint is a much-needed breath of fresh air in the Senate (sorry).
The “Complete the Fence Act” is only expected to receive Democrat support if $100 million of the budget go toward sending Bruce Jenner to Mexico to hold a pole-vaulting seminar.
