Mesa lawmaker calls for border fence

Arizona Daily Star
Cost efficient in the long run, says Representative Pearce

PHOENIX -- a state lawmaker believes a resilience are so frustrated with illegal immigration that they are willing to raise fees-and possibly tax themselves-to build a fence along the state's southern border.
Rep. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, is drafting a measure to ask voters next year to spend the money to erect a climb-proof fence wherever possible from Yuma to east of Douglas.
Pearce said he believes stemming the flow of people crossing the border illegally will end up saving Arizonans far more than what the state spends for health care, education and prison costs on illegal entrants.
Arizona can't legally build a fence right on the border, which is federal land. But Pearce said it could erect it along the southern property lines of individual landowners.
Even assuming some landowners would allow a fence to be erected, Reyes said all that will do is move illegal crossing to another location in the same way it did in response to fences and increased patrols in California and Texas, as well as along a few spots on the Arizona border. it may not completely stop them from coming over, but it would make it more inconvenient
The idea got a chilly reception from Cochise County Supervisor Paul Newman, whose district includes a large stretch of border land, including Ladd's property. He said it would be a waste of state money, as federal officials have plans to build their own fence.

Anyway, Newman said a fence will "resolve nothing,'' saying the real solution is a good guest-worker program. I disagree on the guest worker program of being a solution.
I'm not opposed to the idea for a guest worker policy, if it will will place limits and controls over the people coming over here. In addition, that would make the immigrants "legal" to be here.

I am not in favor of just handing out a blanket pardon to illegal immigrants who are here. That sends a message that our federal laws do not mean anything and that all you have to do is hide out for a while and get amnesty.

Sounding like a broken record, if you come here legally, welcome.
