US House votes to wall up part of the Mexico border

US House votes to wall up Mexico border - Yahoo! News: "The 260-159 voice vote on an amendment to a bill on illegal immigration 'mandates the construction of specific security fencing, including lights and cameras, along the Southwest border for the purposes of gaining operational control of the border.

'Fencing has been designated in sectors that have the highest number of immigrant deaths, instances of drug smuggling and illegal border crossings,' because of the large number of would-be immigrants who die in the desert attempting to cross the US border."

Only part of the border is being blocked, but this is a huge step forward for us.
