In announcing the resumption of a "virtual fence" on the U.S.-Mexican border yesterday, the Obama administration sent a powerful message of continuity with President George W. Bush, who included a pledge to secure the border as part of a 2006 effort to persuade Congress to overhaul the nation's immigration laws.


This is one of the few things started by the Bush administration and continued by the Obama administration that i actually think is good. Illegal immigration is a real problem and if this will help to curb the influx of illegals, then it's okay with me.

What i don't like about it is the potential for this technology to be abused. Would TPTB use this against American citizens as well as illegal immigrants? How long is it going to be until we're all contained within "virtual fences?"

Hadn't thought about it until you mentioned it, but one could have something to do with the other. Perhaps the flu situation is worse down there than they are telling us. Thanks for the reply, post starred.

90% of the sensor reading they are getting with the virtual fence they have already installed so far have been false alarms and 60% they have never even checked out.

The coyotes already know how to set off the sensors and do so in areas to cover there runs across in other areas.

They also know how to flood areas and overload the ability of the border patrol to respond.

This virtual fence will never stop the illegals but may only slow them down by a few %.
