wheres the fence?
15 Nov 2007
bush is a traitor facilitating a vatican invasion....the invasion is supposed to cover up aipacs crimes, wqhich is why he zionazis are trying to kill any initiatives at border is their final step to putting America on level with the third world, work-wise...duh Alliance

We have the "smoking gun" on why the government isn't
building the double-layered fence mandated by law.

Please read below and forward to your friends.

As we reported to you last week, our government has built just five
miles of the 854 miles of double-layer border fence mandated by
the Secure Fence Act of 2006.
This outrageous fact begs a question...
Why? If the law mandated a double layer fence covering 854 miles,
then how come such little progress has been made?
+ + Border fence funding hoax of 2006 and 2007's research staff has blown the lid off a deceptive
and convoluted border fence funding sham being perpetrated on
the citizens of our nation.

Warning -- reading this report will enrage you. It will
infuriate you. Go here to access the full report:

As you will see in this report, Congress and the Administration
are pretending to support a real border fence but then working
behind the scenes to ensure that the Secure Fence Act is never
really implemented.
It happened last year, and as I write, Congress is trying to repeat
its Border Fence Funding Hoax on us again! Here's how...
As you may know, last week an amendment providing $3 billion for
border security was stripped from the DOD appropriations bill.
We fully expect that bill to be added to the DHS funding bill
in the next few days. But even if they pass the $3 billion
funding amendment, DHS may not be required to use any of that
money for the border fence.
That's because of another amendment by Sen. Hutchison that says
DHS does not have to build the fence! Sen. Hutchison's staff told
us this amendment (also removed from DOD appropriations) will also
be re-attached to the DHS appropriations bill.
+ + Action Items: Help expose the Funding Hoax

I need your help to expose Congress’ Fence Funding
Hoax. We need to flood every House and Senate office with faxes
demanding action.
Specifically, we are calling for an amendment (or amendments) to
be added to the DHS appropriations bill to fully fund the
double-layer fence and directly tie that funding to the actual
building of the fence mandated by the Secure Fence Act.
I am asking you to take two actions today:
1. Send faxes to your Senators, your Congressman and other
key leaders exposing the Fence Funding Hoax Go here:
(As always you can use our FaxFire system or send your own faxes.
All the information is provided at the above link.)
2. Call your Senators and Congressman today:
Sen. Domenici 202-224-6621
Sen. Bingaman 202-224-5521
To reach your representative, call the House Switchboard:
Talking Points:
1. I am disappointed that Congress has not tied the border security
funding directly to the double-layer fence mandated by the Secure
Fence Act.
2. I call on Congress to reject any amendments (such as the
Hutchison Amendment, SA 3176 to H.R. 3222) that gives Homeland
Security total discretion over whether or not to build a
border fence.
3. I call on Congress to amend the DHS appropriations bill to
fully fund 854 miles of DOUBLE-LAYER fencing and directly tie
such funding to the Secure Fence Act's two-layer fence mandate.
Again, please read our full report. You will be outraged when you
see how the "fix was in" last year even before the Senate voted on
the Secure Fence Act -- and how Congress is trying to repeat the
funding hoax this year.
The DHS appropriations bill is in House-Senate conference right
now and could move quickly.
Thank you for taking action.
Steve Elliott, President
