Border Remains Wide Open
Patrol reports that the vehicle barrier being constructed along
the Mexican border and the Goldwater bombing range was halted
March 22, the day it ran its last"B.E.E.F" survey.
The top photo at left shows construction
activity at the eastern end of the vehicle barrier on March 22.
The bottom photo shows the eastern limit of the fence on May
10. It is clear from these photos that construction was halted
on March 22, half-way across the area
"Our March 22 survey showed that
the entire 48 miles was criss-crossed by north-south vehicular
traffic, most likely drug loads," said Glenn Spencer of
ABP and pilot of both aerial surveys. "The idea that the
government stopped even this puny attempt to protect its citizens
is stunning," he added.
ABP warned that the Bollard-type fence
being constructed along the border might easily be defeated
During the May 10 survey ABP spotted what appeared to be
of the Bollard fence as if it had been tampered with.
ABP will issue a more complete report
on the May 10 survey on Tuesday, May 15.
Spencer says the report will show very
little progress in controlling the border.
