Sen. Jim DeMint wants to "Complete the Fence Now"

A new website dedicated to protecting our borders:

“Complete the Fence Act” that will require the completion of 700
miles of reinforced pedestrian fencing along the nation’s southern border by
December 31, 2010. The bill also requires the U.S. Department of Homeland
Security (DHS) to report to Congress by June 2009 on fence construction progress
and how it plans to complete the full fence by the 2010 deadline.
September 2006, Congress overwhelmingly passed and the President signed a bill
that required 700 miles of reinforced fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border. The
“Complete the Fence Act” will require DHS to complete the 700 miles fence by
December 31, 2010, using only reinforced pedestrian fencing, not vehicle
barriers or “virtual” fencing.

Go there.
