EDINBURG, Texas (AP) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called a plan to build fencing along parts of the Mexico border a "terrible idea" that overlooks local communities.

Pelosi made the comments during her trip to the Rio Grande Valley for the annual Hispanic Engineering, Science & Technology Week conference at the University of Texas-Pan American.

"I have been against the fence, I thought it's a bad idea even when it was just a matter of discussion," said Pelosi, D-Calif. "These are communities where you have a border going through them, they are not communities where you have a fence splitting them."

Last year, President Bush signed the Secure Fence Act requiring the construction of fencing along the 2,000-mile border. The plans call for about 370 miles of fence and 200 miles of vehicle barriers, including concrete barriers, by the end of 2008.

Pelosi also touted legislation known as the DREAM Act that would make it easier for some illegal immigrants to receive higher education benefits. She spoke at a conference that drew more than 5,000 students for activities designed to inspire careers in science and technology."

A small ecological disaster is better than a large national disaster.

I THINK A FENCE IS A GREAT IDEA ? BUT THER SHOULD BE TWO FENCES WITH A LARGE SPACE INBETWEEN. THAT
SPACE WOULD BE A NO MAN ZONE. I DON'T THINK IT VERY NICE TO CALL PEOPLE NAMES ! I AM NOT WORRIED ABOUT THE GOOD MEXICAN PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO PROVIDE A BETTER LIFE FOR THERE FAMILYS. WHAT REALLY CONSERNS ME IS TERRORIST TRYING TO GET INTO
THIS COUNTRY TO DO DAMAGE ! AFTER THIS WAR IS OVER
WE SHOULD HAVE TROOPS ALONG THE FENCE AND CONTAINMENT PLACE TO KEEP THE ILLEGALS WE FIND !

Yeah, yeah. Tell me all about it. The so called 'ecologists' are also the ones making it so we have to get our oil out of country.

I agree with the above poster that said that it's better to have a LITTLE environmental problem than to have those illegals trash the whole nation.

It wasn't very long ago that we were bad mouthing the Russians for building a wall around Berlin. People still crashed the wall and escaped. Big celebration when the failed wall came down.
The Great Wall of China didn't keep the Mongols out. I think a wall around Mexico is pretty much a wast of time and money.
You need to educate yourself more on the Berlin wall. I've been there.

I quit the Sierra Club because they were extremely pro illegal alien. They told me they changed their public stance to non comitted either way when I questioned them about it but they still are extremely pro alien. That is a confused environmental group.

What is more, as for me, I'm all FOR serious environmental groups that actually have scientific reasons for their stances. But I'm told that many of these people don't even have any real scientific data to back up their desires.

And if they had any sense at all, scientific background or no, they'd realize the IMPACT of MANY people coming in and breeding indiscriminately. Better to block a few animals than invite nonadherance to environmental rules and all the NEEDS that many people have over the years that they are here.
