A border fence after all

Frustrated by President Obama’s unwillingness to build a fence as promised by law, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a law to secure the border with private funding, using qualified prison inmates for labor.

Senate Bill 1406 permits Arizona to work with other border states in constructing a privately funded border fence hailed as a major step in enforcing national security.

The federal government has put states like Arizona on the back burner for far too long. People who want to support this effort can contact: Secure America’s Border, 20118 N. 67th St., Ste. 600-608, Glendale, AZ 85308.
