Now THIS is a Border Fence! (Qalqilya, West Bank)

Following their servile Stalin era- like display of deference to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, the question is will Congress follow his lead?

Construction has been completed on the first permanent section of a border fence between Israel and Egypt… which will be nearly 135 miles long when it is completed in mid-2012. A decision to speed up construction of the fence was made in the ministry just days after Egypt opened its Rafah border crossing with Gaza in the Sinai.

Infiltration of the border by illegal migrants has dropped by 50 percent since construction of the fence began last November… African migrants generally enter Israel through its largely unmonitored border with Egypt's Sinai… including 2,600 since the beginning of the year
