Patrol - Thousands of Americans have
donated hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars, to
build a fence on the border to stop illegal aliens. One man mortgaged his home and donated $120,000 that otherwise would have gone to Disabled American
Veterans. Chris Simcox continues to sell the plan as an Israeli-

thing built is a five- strand barbed wire livestock fence that
a rancher says won't keep illegals out. "I have warned from the beginning not to donate
money to any such effort until the promoters produce a building
permit that includes the specifications as being sold by those
promoters," said Glenn Spencer of American Patrol. Spencer
has property on the border in Arizona.
