Senate Set to Consider Fence Bill
The Senate, which has been the major obstacle to strict border-security legislation this year, will take up a bill this week that calls for constructing 700 more miles of fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border. 

"It's time to secure the border with Mexico," Majority Leader Bill Frist said last night before filing the parliamentary motions to force the House-passed bill onto the Senate floor in a final effort to get a major immigration bill on the president's desk before the elections. 

Jim Manley, a spokesman for Minority Leader Harry Reid, said the move "smacks of desperation" and was a "clear repudiation of President Bush's call for comprehensive legislation." 

The Secure Fence Act of 2006, which was easily approved by the House last week, contains none of the "comprehensive" measures that President Bush, Democrats and some Senate Republicans have demanded. Those include provisions to grant citizenship rights to about 10 million illegal aliens living in the country and a guest-worker program that would usher hundreds of thousands more foreign laborers into the U.S.

Get Out the Vote 2006 Style; Build a Border Fence
Category: EXCLUSION
By: Pete Kendall, September 19, 2006
When times are bad, intolerance for differences grows, and people build walls and fences to shut out those perceived to be different.
The Elliott Wave Theorist, September 1992


fenceNothing new here; we covered the fast rising anti-immigration sentiment in the February 2006 issue of The Elliott Wave Financial Forecast and Socio Times entries of March 27 , April 24, May 31 and August 21. But after cooling through the summer, temperatures appear to rising over illegals easy access to the U.S. The Secure Fence Act of 2006 may signal that the bearish “close-down-the-border” forces are back on the offensive. Notice how the bullish elements of the initial bill, provision providing citizenship rights to millions of illegals in the U.S and guest passes to hundreds of thousands more, was left out of the latest version. As First says, it time to secure the borders. Many incumbents are in a tough spot. This bill is probably on the move again because one sure way to score points with voters is to back the new border fence.
