Anyone know exactly where this is? "...nine miles at the western edge of a 37-mile stretch of desert in southwestern Arizona" is what the article says. Anyone live near there, who can tell us what's ACTUALLY happening at that location? "Concrete filled vertical tubes" as vehicle barriers. I take it people can walk between them? Will ordinary fencing be placed between them to impede pedestrian traffic? There's a lot of things this article doesn't tell us. It would be nice if the Feds kept this up. Time will tell. How long will it be before we start hearing the tired "A fence alone won't halt illegal immigration!!!', uttered as though somebody had suggested it would? -------------------------------- http://www.cnsnews.com/ThisHour.asp#Feds Begin Construction of Vehicle Fence Along Southwest Border Feds Begin Construction of Vehicle Fence Along Southwest Border Jan. 25, 2007 (CNSNews.com) - Construction has begun on vehicle barriers that will be part of a mix of fencing along the Arizona-Mexico border to discourage illegal border crossings, according to the Associated Press. The construction that started Wednesday is part of a Bush administration initiative announced last year aiming to provide a mix of high-tech virtual fencing and a traditional physical barrier. The first phase of construction will be made up primarily of concrete-filled vertical tubes set into the ground to prevent vehicles from entering. Department of Homeland Security spokesman Russell Knocke said some portions of the barrier may also contain traditional fencing. The first phase will be placed along nine miles at the western edge of a 37-mile stretch of desert in southwestern Arizona.
