The US-Mexico border

I’ve been sifting through the hell that is my bookmarks folder—much like my room when it is messy it is an embarrassing place that I hope nobody ever gets to see—and found this gem on immigration reform. It is about the argument that the US-Mexico broder needs to be more secure:

The fact of the matter is that the border is more secure now than it has ever been. And yet some members of Congress continue to insist that the border is unsafe, and as such, that they will hold immigration reform hostage until we have secured the border. With more than $17 billion spent each year on immigration and border enforcement, this is not only a misguided approach but an expensive one as well.

Like all good things in life it includes an infographic.

The New York Times have also been crowdsourcing photos of the border. Check it out.
