Today I interviewed Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, Assistant Secretary fo defense Paul McHale, and a senior Border Patrol official, Kevin Stevens, on the utility and probabilty of a significant expansion of the 80-some miles of existing border fence.
If you believe in the fence, call your senator and urge a yes vote on the Sessions Amendment which will authroize 375 miles of fencing and 500 miles of vehicle barriers. The Capitol switchboard is 202-225-3121.
If the Sessions Amendment passes, any House-Senate conference repoprt will have to include at least his 375 miles of fencing. This is a huge moment in serious border enforcement, and any Senator who votes against it will rightly be understood as an opponent of security at the border.
