DHS's bogus border fence claims

Isn't it great when a government agency who's explicit purpose is to
protect our country, is working hard to be prevent it? Here is an
e-mail I receive to today about the border fence issue:

From the Desk of:
Steve Elliott, President, Alliance


Dear Robert,

Thank you so much for signing Grassfire's petition to
Restore the Secure Fence Act.

Our research staff just uncovered another reason why your petition
is so vital. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is once
again inflating its numbers of the amount of border fence that
has been built. They claim over 300 miles. Reality check:
less than 10 miles of double-layer fencing has been built
since the Secure Fence Act was passed 18 months ago.

It's basically another border fence hoax. See our full report here
of how DHS inflates its numbers to claim over 300 miles of fencing:

And progress has slowed to a crawl. Since last September, DHS
has only built 6 miles of pedestrian fence and 35 miles of vehicle
barriers. And their "virtual" fence test was a total failure.

So with the "sunset" clause set to go into effect in just nine
months, it is clear that DHS is doing nothing more than playing
games and juggling numbers. Even worse, DHS is counting so-called
"vehicle barriers" for half of its claimed progress. Just one
problem -- illegal aliens can walk right through the vehicle barriers!

The clock is ticking and you and I must do all we can to restore
the Secure Fence Act.

We still are far short of our goal to rally 250,000 signers of
our "Restore The Fence Act" petition before next month's delivery
on Capitol Hill.

We need your help.

Please forward this message to your friends

Secure Fence Act:

Again, please read our special report on the games DHS is playing
with the border fence, and with our nation's security! Go here:

And thanks in advance for taking action with us to spread the word

Steve Elliott, President

Exactly how is the DHS providing "Homeland Security" by lying to US?
