What fence? Rep. Jason Chaffetz tours Mexican border

It was just last week that Arizona Sen. John McCain toured the U.S.-Mexico border, where he watched a woman climb an 18-foot border fence. This week it’s Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz’s turn to tour the border, but as he illustrated with photos, the “path to citizenship” has handrails, and not all fences are 18 feet high.

If you think that fence is inadequate, you ain’t seen nothing yet. So, here are some pictures of nothing.

Don’t let McCain see those stairs; the country just can’t afford to be building escalators at the border right now.

As Chaffetz tweeted, problems at the border aren’t limited to Mexico.

    How long before some of those handheld SAMs from Libya are smuggled in to shoot down domestic airliners? Or dirty bombs from Iran?
    Of course, as long as the “undocumented tourists” don’t shoot up King Putts favorite golf course they’ll probably be given asylum and EBTs.

      LOL! “King Putts”

      • E Quilibrate

        Shouldn’t that be King Putz, no regard for the golf

    • Tugger – not quite dead yet

      What makes you think those weapons haven’t already been smuggled in?

  • Garth Haycock

    How many of you folks know that Chaffetz’s father was once married to Kitty Dukakis?

    • Mapache

      So? His family found a way to screw liberals.

    • Guest

      How is that relevant?

    • E Quilibrate

      I certainly didn’t, but thanks for the brain trigger.
      Kitty do “what?”

  • DwellsInFire

    How about we just post a bunch of “Illegal Alien Free Zone” signs across the boarder. That should keep them out. Might as well give one of those brilliant and effective liberal ideas a try. :-)

      That is a thought. I saw a story saying video caught at border of cartel somewhere and wondered if they managed to catch McCain handing out the welcome baskets and introducing them to Megs who gives them each a kiss on the cheek.

    • Txgirlinnh

      Don’t forget though, we can’t say “illegal immigrant” anymore so I’m betting “illegal alien” is a super big no no 😉

    • Mapache

      The “Gun Free Zones” work at schools so I agree that the signs will do the trick!

    • Squirrel!

      Or we could just take a stick & draw a line in the dirt like they did in the old cartoons. That always seemed to work.

  • bidentime

    Fences? We don’t need no stinking Fences!

  • EastValleyConservative

    Yet Nappy still continues to claim we are as secure as we have always been. If something doesn’t change, moving from Arizona where my tax dollars will go towards American citizens and our needs. (that includes LEGAL immigrants) Not that they don’t make their way into every other state already…..but enough. The FEDS keep suing AZ to keep us from enforcing the law.

    Rep. Chaffetz: You’ve walked the walk. Now go back to DC and talk the talk.

    My 90 year Grandma can jump that fence with no probelm

  • Kate

    Maybe someone in Congress should alter their sales pitch for securing the border to Obama and the Dems.

    Something like, “Look, we need to build more fences. Think of all the spending you could do!”

  • Lady 12

    Yes, TSA! Get dogs! Problems solved!
    And for crying out loud, why is there no fence? Mind boggling!

  • Matthew Hampton

    You don’t have to be in the desert to see there is no fence, just go down to South Texas.

    • Squirrel!

      Yep. Just said that as I was reading this. They just swim across & go. Saw that once myself.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    YES! We should build a wall from the Gulf to the Pacific to keep “Undocumented Democrats” out, and it would start with a ditch, 3 feet wide by fifty feet deep (to discourage tunnelers). Jawamax 8<{D}

    Whatever happened to using the National Guard? We can send them to Iraq and Afghanistan but not to protect America from an invasion.

    • http://yourdaddy.net/ NotaLemming

      If the National Guard is used they shoot an armed convicted 3 time escaped drug smuggler they might get sued. We can’t have that. Better just leave the border open.

  • Lipstick

    Thank goodness all these people running across the border illegally won’t be called illegal by the AP. And why on earth do we not have a counter right there at the border where we can go ahead and sign these people who are not illegal aliens up for free crap right away…including registering them to vote Democrat?

  • wsextonm

    Why don’t they just leave mini vans and a GPS so the illegals won’t get lost

  • http://Twitter.com/jkerrysforehead John Kerry’s Forehead

    Mega respect to this rep for doing this tour & tweeting the facts. More of this. MSM should be filming border 24/7…but that would make “the one” look bad. Smh

    “Want to find bombs, drugs, currency, etc? DOGS and behavioral profiling. What the TSA should be doing more of”

    But I thought profiling was wrong, oppressive, racist, and just plain mean?
