Fence? What Fence?

The Washington Times reports that the border fence is far behind schedule, making it unlikely that the first 70 miles will be completed by the end of September, as originally scheduled.

The situation is such that members of the Border Patrol are being recruited to leave their regular duties for fence building...meanwhile, half of the National Guard members who were supposed to be improving border security infrastructure -- freeing the Border Patrol for law enforcement -- are being sent home.

And politicians have trouble understanding why the public was skeptical about the commitment of the Administration and Congress to provide border security, along with amnesty for illegal aliens?
