Take action now:

Mexico, environmentalists oppose border fence; Argentina insulted

From this:
Mexico is calling on the United States to alter a plan to expand border fences designed to stem illegal immigration, saying the barriers would threaten migratory species accustomed to roaming freely across the frontier.

Ways to minimize environmental damage from the fences could include the creation of cross-border bridge areas so that ecosystems remain connected and "green corridors" of wilderness without roads that would be less attractive to smugglers, according to a report released yesterday and prepared for the Mexican government by experts and activists from both nations [mentioned: Mexico's Environment Department, Environment Secretary Juan Rafael Elvira, Exequiel Ezcurra, director of research at the San Diego Natural History Museum].

The report also proposed "live" fences of cactuses, removable fencing, and more permeable barriers to allow water, insects and pollen to cross the border. Ecologists say species affected include Mexican jaguars and black bears, and the endangered, antelope-like Sonora Pronghorn...
Somehow I think the only thing "green" the Mexican government cares about is the color of our money. They also say they'll file a complaint with the United Nations' International Court of Justice if necessary; they've done that before on another matter.

Meanwhile:
A U.S. plan to expand fences along the Mexican border to stem illegal immigration is an insult to all Latin Americans, Argentine President Nestor Kirchner said Tuesday during a visit to Mexico.

"It's not just an insult to our sister nation of Mexico, but to all the nations of Latin America and all the nations of the world," the leftist president said to the applause of Mexican lawmakers...

Shouldn't Latin American governments be rather offended by millions of their own citizens fleeing north in search of better life? What's"chutzpah" in Spanish?

And what about the Mountains of garbage left by these illegals as they cross the desert. I have seen pictures of the piles of garbage and I understand the clean-up would cost BILLIONS! So far 1% has been cleaned up so far. DISGUSTING! But you can bet BUSH will cling to this excuse to stall a fence being built. He is full of excuses and some of that other stinking stuff left in the desert!!

mary is dead on the system will never do anything but put Americans in prison for standing up to the pigs of the third world. by the way check out the FEMA Concentration camps by executive order the system will put up many fences but only around people who say no and mean it. see rex 84 and Army Regulation 210-35 and forced Labor under Law of American civilians by Law, right now 50 known camps are being used and are being ran by the U.S.Army inside the USA. SEE Prison Planet.com or go to MySpace Alex Jones. By the way a Mexican outfit will someday put up a fence for the Last American in a Mexican ZOO.

Why in the world would any country want to legalize (or even let in) millions of people who obviously identify with each other far more than they identify with the country's society? How would Argentinians like having a block of 10-million illegal Chinese showing up _there_ and waving the chicom flag? These a-holes are utter hypocrites.

Smitty got that right. The only migratory species this fence will threaten has two legs. And they should be threatened. Every chance we get. A good fence is ecologically sound. It will protect the most endangered species of all, Americans, from the predators and eco-criminals who prey upon us. Build the wall. Double layer, triple layer, back it with the military and apologize to no one. Least of all to the whiners on the other side who profit from the traffic.
