Beer Monday: That Fence Thing Doesn’t Work, Right?

Happy Monday! The start of a new work week, time to get busy, shift a few paradigms, think outside the box, be productive. How ’bout a beer?

Perhaps all those who say that a border fence just cannot work should take to drinking. Or maybe they arrived at their positions while drinking. Why? Because the fence is working (h/t Right Wing News)

PALOMAS, MEXICO —At this fabled border crossing, where the last armed conflict between the United States and Mexico flared, the rancorous debate over the new U.S. anti-immigrant fence has been resolved.

The fence works, residents north and south of it say. At least it works for now on this snippet of the line.

“You hear it all the time: Fences don’t work. Fences don’t work,” said Mark Winder, a transplanted New Englander and part-time deputy sheriff who lives on a small ranch outside Columbus, N.M., where a 3-mile stretch of wall was completed in August. “I live 2½ miles from the border, and the fence is working.”

James Johnson’s 3,000-acre family farm abuts the border west of Columbus. “Where there is a will, there’s a way,” said Johnson, 32, of some migrants’ ability to get around, over or under any barrier.

“But anything is better than just running across the border anytime you want to,” he said.

So it is working. The fence is making a difference. Despite all the naysayers and those who want open borders, usually so they can pander to Hispanics and hopefully create more voters, it is working. Just like it has almost everywhere else a border fence is built. Yes, people will still get across, such as they do at official crossings, but not to the extent they were before. And, more importantly, it lowers the amount of the criminal element which sneaks across the border, which does not include just Hispanics, but Islamic extremists.

As a sidebar, I caught Ellen Ratner (D-free agent) this morning on Fox, discussing Hillary’s non-answer on drivers licenses for illegals. She said the issue was to “complex” to have a simple answer. That is what Dems usually say when they do not really want to answer, plus, it lets them make the claim that they are smarter then everyone else. But, it is no complex. Those of us who do not live in the “reality based community” understand why.

    While I would usually agree with you on the States thing, in this case, it is federal law, because it involves interstate commerce, and these people have entered the country illegally.
