The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee is calling on the White House to present Congress with a detailed timeline for its plan to secure the U.S.-Mexico border following its move to scrap a flawed $1 billion border fence initiative.

I couldn't agree more. Just what is their plan? I doubt that they have one. Napolitano's more concerned with foreign countries protecting their borders, than OURS!

Yes, yes yes! They need a plan ASAP. They can't continue to sit on this. Every day that goes by, more illegals are sneaking in. They need to strike a balance between border patrol / national guard troops on the ground and laying down a physical barrier to obstruct (or stop) their attempts at entry onto US soil.

This is so discouraging when at the same time, there are articles floating around about a very costly buoy system being placed along a US / Mexico border canal to save illegals who knowingly defied warning signs not to cross the dangerous waterway in their attempts to reach the US illegally.
