Take a good look at this picture. Is it a fence? Is it a moat? Are the bars to trap alligators? This is the fence that through our government's well thought out wisdom is being constructed along the border of Mexico and the United States! This photo was taken out the truck window as we drove onto the "Mexican side" of the fence. However, we were still in Texas as the border is really the Rio Grande which was many miles further on. Now the fence is tall and strong, but there are many openings through which to pass. In one picture you can see a tire laying by the opening. It was explained to me that the border patrol drags this tire behind their vehicles so they can inspect for footprints. I'll post the rest of the pictures on my Flickr site. Draw your own conclusions.
