Bus Illegal Aliens Into U. S. to Avoid Environmental Danger

Wildlife enthusiasts are alarmed by the “fence” which is possibly harming wildlife in the Rio Grand Valley by blocking their access to water. Are the enthusiasts alarmed by the potential harm to the animals for the animals own sake, or is it really an economic issue? I suspect it is both. From an AP report.

Wild cats, reptiles and at least 500 species of birds attract visitors from around the world who bring the impoverished region $150 million a year.

The fence.

To curb illegal immigration, the U.S. government plans to complete 370 miles of fencing and put 200 miles of vehicle barriers on the southwest border by the end of 2008. But this has brought complaints that the fence and barriers are harmful to the environment.


Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff on Monday defended the construction of a fence along the southwest border, saying it's actually better for the environment than what happens when people illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico line.

"Illegal migrants really degrade the environment. I've seen pictures of human waste, garbage, discarded bottles and other human artifact in pristine areas,"

So it appears that the critters are doomed no matter what happens. Either the fence disrupts their patterns of travel or the illegal aliens destroy the fragile environment. It is time for a liberal judge to step in and solve this problem, for the animals.

I suggest that a Federal court order the halt to the construction of the fence and the removal of the existing fencing. That will solve half of the animals’ problems. Next the court must order the U.S. government to send buses into Mexico and transport into the U.S. all who wish it illegally immigrate. To minimize the impact of large amounts of illegal aliens disembarking at any one city, the bus drivers must be ordered to drive around the country and randomly discharge his passengers. Also, ICE must be forbidden from following the buses in order to apprehend the illegals. To do otherwise just would not be fair. This is the perfect liberal response.

Now wait just a minute. I just had an epiphany. We could build a canal along the border and run the fence down the middle. Then the critters would have all the water that they need.
