The Department of Homeland Security will bypass environmental and land-management laws to build hundreds of miles of border fence between the United States and Mexico, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Tuesday.

"Criminal activity at the border does not stop for endless debate or protracted litigation," Chertoff said.
