MEXICO FINDS FENCE “OFFENSIVE”
The US says it is building 700 miles of fencing along its border with Mexico to stop illegal immigration.
Many Mexicans see the fence as offensive and say it will be ineffective and potentially cause more deaths in border crossings.
An estimated 1.2 million illegal immigrants were arrested in 2005 trying to cross into the US via the border states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.
About 11 million Mexicans are thought to live in the US, more than six million of them illegally.
If it’s going to cause more deaths, let me throw out a crazy idea: quit entering our country illegally. Also, sorry to offend you but it’s hard to see why we wouldn’t put up a fence when you look at the numbers above.
