DON'T FENCE ME IN!

Does it matter what a fence does to the environment? Apparently not to the Bush admin. Of course, supporters of the fence don't care; just as long as it goes up and for a long, long way.

Waivers will be used to speed up border fence
Move will get around levee barrier and environmentally sensitive areas


The U.S government waived environmental and other regulations Tuesday that it said threatened to delay completion of nearly 500 miles of a planned barrier fence along the border with Mexico.

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, who has chafed at obstacles to the controversial barrier project, issued the waivers for stretches of land in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. The fence is intended to deter illegal crossings by immigrants, drug runners and others.

Wasn't their patron sait Ronald Reagan famous for saying, 'tear down that wall'?

Selective memory?
