Immigration Reform Group Wants Fence On U.S.-Mexico Border

By Scott McLean

An immigration reform group named NoInvaders.Org this week proposed to double-fence part of the U.S.-Mexico border, according to the organization's press release on PR Newswire.

The fence would be privately-financed, made of barbed-wire and be equipped with solar wireless cameras, providing ongoing video that would go to a website, the NoInvaders.Org explained in the release, adding the fence would be built and monitored by volunteers, who could hear an alarm on their computers and then notify the Sheriff's department.

"Failed border security is about corruption, not incompetence or lack of money," says Jim Wood, founder of NoInvaders.Org. "Washington has often handcuffed Border Patrol and rejected every affordable and practical solution for securing our borders, their consternation was obvious in a Senate committee's rejection of 698 miles of fencing offered in H.R. 4437."
