Democrats Sue To Stop Border Fence

Have I told you lately that I hate You?

Fourteen House Democrats, including eight committee chairmen, said yesterday that they will file a brief supporting a legal challenge to the Bush administration’s plans to finish building 470 miles of fencing and other barriers on the U.S.-Mexico border by the end of the year.

Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.) led the group, which includes the heads of the energy and commerce, transportation, intelligence, education, rules, and veteran affairs panels.

Defenders of Wildlife and the Sierra Club asked the Supreme Court last month to review whether the administration’s decision to waive environmental laws to finish the fence is constitutional. That waiver was approved by the Republican-led Congress in 2005.

Do you believe this is really about environmental issues?

This is an outright and blatant push to overturn the legislative will of the vast majority of the American people – because these twits somehow think that this will get them the illegal immigrant vote.  That they think there IS an illegal immigrant vote also says a lot about their push to prevent people from having to provide identification at the polls.

At some point the American people will become fed up with this continual push to use the courts to overturn the express will of the people and their representatives.  Fourteen Democrat congressmen can sue and stop the government from fulfilling the wishes of the people?  They can tie this issue up in the courts for decades – and what do they care?  They don’t live next to the border with people running through their lands, stealing things, defecating on the ground and shooting at anyone who might interfere with them.  They live in nice gated communities with walls and alarm systems and peace and quiet.
