Judge Grants Land to Feds for Border Fence, Liberal media dismayed

U.S. District Judge Alia Ludlum ordered the city of Eagle Pass, Texas, to hand over to the federal government 233 acres along the Southern border on which the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plans to construct physical border fencing.

The government filed suit on Monday. Judge Ludlum's ruling was made that same day. The city was notified of the ruling on Tuesday. DHS is endeavoring to complete 370 miles of fencing before the close of fiscal year 2008.

P.S. - That judge was nominated -- go figure -- by George W. Bush.

I'm not familiar with the flow of illegals in the area. If it's heavy, it's a good place to put fencing. If it's light and sporadic, it would have been better to start elsewhere.

Eagle Pass is right on the border, with several small cities not far on the other side, so it could well be a prime candidate.

Of course, "amnesty" or any other method of dealing with those already in the country is a completely separate issue from stopping border crossings in the first place.

I didn't notice that this AP writer did her homework enough to mention the the US congress passed a bill to build this fence and secure major portions of the southern border.

I still think all our politicians should be fired as traitors for not building the fence on 9/12
