Los Angeles Times -- December 1
Newt Gingrich signs border fence pledge during Iowa swing
    Des Moines -- Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich, whose plan to give permanent residency to illegal immigrants has angered some conservatives, signed a pledge Thursday to build a double fence along the U.S.-Mexico border by the end of 2013. [...]
    The pledge contains a significant loophole: It leaves it up to the U.S. Border Patrol or Department of Homeland Security to determine locations for the fence.
Red DotAmerican Patrol Report Comment: This is a meaningless pledge because it includes the following caveat: "(fence locations to be specified by the Border Patrol or Homeland Security)".
  Remember, DHS (chock full of subversives) gutted the Secure Fence Act of 2006 after Sen. Hutchinson gave it the authority to decide where the fence should go.
    For putting this language in, Americans for Securing the Border raises serious questions as to its competence.
