Governor Rick Perry Fumbles Immigration
In the debate this week in Orlando, Governor Rick Perry, TX, Republican candidate for president makes the contention that fencing the 2,200 mile border is beyond the capability of the United States. The number of miles of freeway in the United States is 48,876 statute miles. It took 35 years to build. So a fence that is 5% in length and not near as capital and materially intensive should take less than 21 months, given the same effort. He's Naut Right. The defense budget is $663.8 Billion. He is still Naut Right. The primary duty of the office of President is National Defense. A secure border would seem the first order of that priority.
