I tend to think that a fence along the Mexican border is a reasonably good idea. So when I heard that the President of the University of Texas Brownsville had denied an entry request from US Customs and Border Protection to survey in preparation for construction, my first thought was "Damn hippies."
Yeah, not so much. Check the map. The proposed fence would cut the campus in half, leaving their golf course and International, Technology, Education and Commerce Campus on the wrong side of the fence. Not cool.
So my new thought is that I'm in favor of a fence along the Mexican border, but I'd kind of like it to actually be on the border.Posted by ryan at February 6, 2008 9:25 AM
