A Line in the Sand

The article examines attempts at immigration reform by the U.S. Senate, including a proposal to build a reinforced fence along the length of the Mexican border. Its sponsors hope the barricade will stem a growing national concern that the southern border is an easy conduit for terrorists, drug smugglers and undocumented workers. For most of the nearly 2,000-mile-long border, there are no guards or man-made barriers. A primitive road runs parallel to much of the border on the American side. The issue is not barriers but economics.
