Border fence is real, not virtual

Mark Krikorian at The Corner posts this link to a map of the fence along the U.S.’s southern border.  He comments that

the fence is finished or under construction along almost all the border from the Pacific to El Paso, though in some places it’s a vehicle barrier that prevents smuggling vans from crossing but not people from relatively easily hopping over. A spokeswoman for the border agency tells me that none of what’s shown is “virtual fence” as opposed to an actual one, and that they’re building about 50 miles a week at this point.

I had no idea it was so far along. Maybe President Bush had to be pulled kicking and screaming into getting the fence built, but somehow it’s getting done.
