Border Fence or Not
Krentz Killing Raises Questions
|KTVK-TV -- Phoenix -- April 9
Border security a sensitive subject following rancher's murder
|Glenn Spencer speaks with KTVK reporter Harrington.
Unidentified woman rancher: No more fence. No more building stuff. Better equipment and better radios that can talk to each other.
Reporter Kristine Harrington: South of Sierra Vista, this landowner and founder of American Border Patrol, disagrees. He says these tall steel sections are the answer.
Glenn Spencer: Yes, you might have a rancher here and there who doesn't want the fence, but the American people do. The Congress of the United States has to look out - not for one rancher - but for three hundred million people.
Harrington: Yet the border fence is far from complete. Its patchwork style covers about 620 miles of the more than 2,000 mile-long border, and most of it is covered with vehicle barriers like this - or the wildlife friendly picket-fence style like this. In fact, only about sixty miles has steel fences like this.
Glenn Spencer: This is a barrier that works. This has stopped all of the traffic here.
Harrington: Glenn Spencer believes this sort of fence would have saved Robert Krentz.
Spencer: There is no question in my mind that if they had this kind of fencing out there where they have that vehicle barrier, he would be alive today.
Harrington: After all, it is this kind of fence (pointing to vehicle barrier) Krentz's killer cleared to escape to Mexico.
