I am not a big fan of Perry, but I will say this about him: He understands Texas and the reality of The Border, which is, in and of itself, a whole other country and totally out of control. For those who think building a fence all the way from Brownsville to El Paso and beyond, I suggest you get in a car and drive along those 1200 miles to get an idea of the scope of such a proposal. As Perry says, we need boots on the ground and modern surveillance technology. Also, it would be helpful if the Feds would stop supplying guns to the drug lords.
