Harry Reid says, "Tear down that border wall"

It has not taken long for the democrats to propose dismantling the border wall. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is more concerned about a desert plant than about terrorism, illegal immigration or drug smuggling. The truth is that this has nothing to do with the environment. Liberals are in favor of open borders and the wall is standing in the way.

Harry Reid’s shamnesty stand: Senate Bill 9 will tear down the border “wall”
By Michelle Malkin • January 8, 2009 11:08 PM

Harry Reid has filed S. 9, the Democrats’ new shamnesty bill. Not much difference in principle between Reid’s bill and McCain-Kennedy-Bush. Disingenuous lip service to immigration enforcement? Check. Path to legalization? Check.

There are a few new nuggets — most notably, open hostility to the Fence in Name Only on our southern border. Quoting from the bill:

And I believe we would be wise to reconsider the effectiveness and cost of a wall along our southern border, which has adversely affected the fragile environment and vibrant cross-border culture of an entire region. Such a wall stands as a symbol of fear and intolerance. This is not what America is about and we can do better.
