February 24, 2009 The Five Percent Solution American Patrol Report
According to a new ten-minute video produced by American Border Patrol, despite all the media hype to the contrary, the Department of Homeland Security succeeded in constructing only five percent of the border fence mandated in the original Secure Fence Act of 2006.
It shows that despite the failure of DHS to comply with the intent of Congress, some of the fencing they have installed has led to significant reductions in apprehensions of illegal aliens. The Yuma and El Paso sectors show the greatest gain whereas the San Diego and Tucson Sectors show the least. ABP reports that about half of the San Diego Sector has fencing and much of that is old and ineffective. Only 26% of the Tucson Sector is fenced.
