    Virtual fence to guard Arizona border to be approved

    Virtual fence to guard Arizona border to be approved
    EILEEN SULLIVAN

    WASHINGTON — The government plans to approve a 28-mile virtual fence along the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said today.

    Last year the government withheld partial payment to contractor Boeing Co. because the technology the company used in the test project near Tucson, Ariz., did not work properly. The department gave a conditional acceptance in December.

    Chertoff saw the fence during a trip to Arizona last week.

    The virtual fence is part of a national plan to secure the Southwest border with physical barriers and technological detection capabilities intended to stop illegal immigrants on foot and drug smugglers in vehicles.
    The so-called virtual technology can't physically stop anyone. When working all it can do is alert BP of intruders. The technology can be shut down at any time, break down, be disrupted by foul weather, destroyed by drug smugglers, etc.

    Build Duncan Hunter's double-layered fence now!

    If we get a 'virtual fence' does that mean we'll get 'virtual security'?

    How many miles of REAL FENCE could 20 million dollars buy? This is nothing more than our government handing over money to their corporate buddies.
