    1. If it would cost $2.7 million to fill the tunnels, one has to wonder how much it cost to build the durn things in the first place.

    2. The continued existence of these tunnels obviously liberal’s fault. No, they didn’t build them; nor, of course, are they responsible for the fact that no one in the corrupt, incompetent and fanatical Bush administration has done anything about it. But it’s still clearly liberals’ fault because they’re rooting for the tunnels to be there!

    3. There’s no monolithic “we” involved in border policy (“we can work towards building a fence, but we can’t find the cash to fill in tunnels”). Rather, there are competing interests. And, the possibility that some of our politicians have been paid off can’t be completely ignored.

      And, the idea that you shouldn’t build a fence because people might spend millions building tunnels is as absurd as the claim that since you can’t stop all crimes you should disband the police.

    4. Well “we” in the sense of “Congress” (as some monies have been appropriated for that process.

      And your latter point is overly simplistic. My point is this: if we are going to invest billions on a border fence, we need to consider if we are getting our money’s worth. If the most pernicious of border violators will simply dig under the fence, then it calls into serious question the efficacy of the fence. It is basic cost/benefit analysis.
