Bush Signs Fence Bill

Not that this was unexpected, but, it is about time we received something:

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – President Bush on Wednesday signed a homeland security bill that includes an overhaul of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and $1.2 billion for fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border to stem illegal immigration.

Standing before a mountainous backdrop in Arizona, a state that has been the center of much debate over secure borders, Bush signed into law a $35 billion homeland security spending bill that could bring hundreds of miles of fencing to the busiest illegal entry point on the U.S.-Mexican border.

It's not perfect, but it is a start. But, of course, the Braying Asses have to peddle their normal pessimism

Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., a senior member of the House Homeland Security Committee, said the homeland security spending bill does not improve screening of cargo carried on passenger planes, does not provide money to buy and install advanced explosive-detection equipment and does not include strong enough security requirements to protect against a terrorist attack on chemical plants.

Gee, that sounds alot like what other BA's have said before. It really must suck to see the glass as bein damn near empty on everything. Why doesn't Rep Markey bring a Bill to the House floor?
