    Default Construction to start on 700 mile fence between US and Mexico

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- Congress has ordered construction of 700 miles of fence along the U.S.-Mexican border in a move Mexico says will hurt relations between the two countries.

    The Senate voted 80-19, with 26 Democrats joining 54 Republicans in support, Friday night before recessing for the fall political campaigns.

    President Bush has said he would sign it.

    Critics claim the $1.2 billion fence would do little to address the underlying economic, social and law enforcement problems, or to prevent others from slipping across the border, The Washington Post reported.

    A United Press International analysis said the fence's success would be determined by improved economic growth in Mexico and crackdowns on U.S. employment of illegal immigrants.

    Mexico's Foreign Relations Department called the fence "a political answer rather than a viable solution."

    Mexican President Vicente Fox called it "shameful" and compared it to the Berlin Wall, which divided Germany.

    Yeah, except Germany was a divided country.. the US and Mexico aren't 1 country last time I looked.

    Maybe if the Mexican government dragged its country out of the 1800's some prosperity might take place and people wouldnt be fleeing by the hundreds of thousands each year.

    Er no, it's a physical answer because Mexico can't come up with a political or economic solution. This is going to be a financial disaster for gardening, pool maintenance and carwash contractors everywhere - they might even have to employ legals!

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
