Underlining the Cover Up

Border Boletín: Website launched in opposition to border fences
|"Apprehensions dropped dramatically between 2005, the year before the Secure Fence Act was passed, and 2007, the year after. But the decrease did not occur in areas where border walls had been built." No-Border-Wall.com "Nonsense." -- Glenn Spencer, American Border Patrol.
There's been no shortage of opposition to the buildup of border fences over the past few years and now there's website devoted to the cause.
Here's the website: No-Border-Wall.com
This is the description of the the site's purpose from an email sent out by Scott Nicol, No Border Wall spokesperson:
"This site is designed to be a comprehensive guide to the U.S.-Mexico border wall -- its history, its ineffectiveness, types of wall designs, and the problems it has caused. [...]
Glenn Spencer -- American Border Patrol
No-Border-Wall.com is full of misrepresentations and falsehoods.
All indications are that the fence is the only thing that does the job, but we need to know for sure. American Border Patrol has long called for a proper accounting at the border.
One year ago, the Governmental Accountability Office issued a report titled: Secure Border Initiative: Technology Deployment Delays Persist and the Impact of Border Fencing Has Not Been Assessed.
It is now time to finally realize that our government does not want us to know the truth about the border. It is one big cover-up.
