Free the rich!

30 March 2009

Austin American-Stateman, via Bender’s Immigration Daily:

Homeland Security officials say the border fence was not intended to stop illegal immigration but to make it more difficult for people to enter the U.S. illegally. …

But Jeff Wilson, an assistant professor at UT-Brownsville, says that when the fence is completed, it will have gaps in places where the wealthy live.

He recounted a trip to meet a reporter at a Cameron County country club. He said the two encountered dozens of armed border patrol agents at the club on the day they met. A suspected drug smuggler had driven a black Suburban into the Rio Grande and swam to Mexico, Wilson said. “And yet,” he told an audience of about 20 people Saturday, “the fence stops at the country club.”

Mexican gangsters just aren’t clubbable?


I'd never join a club that would have me for a member
