PROTECT AMERICA PETITION
I am petitioning the government of the United States to impliment a plan to fence the borders of the United States between the US and Mexico and Canada. Do to the recent terrorist attacks on the United States and the ongoing threats of attacks, I beleive this plan will help to limit any potential threats from terrorist and to help with with the growing number of illegal immigrants comming into this country. Do to the vast amounts of land that are open for someone to cross into this country, and the insufficent number of border patrol officers to patrol those areas, a metal or concrete fence, at least 20ft. tall, with a walkway and guard towers placed no less than 100 yards apart would greatly deter any person from entering this country that wishes to do America harm or take away jobs and benefits that belong to citizens of this country. I beleive this effort would create much needed jobs and ease the strain on the men and women that try every day to prorect us from those that wish to enter this country illegaly. Although this has already started in California, the need to fence the entire border will also cut down on the amount of drugs that enter this country, a plus in my book. I do not have a certain date to send this petition, but I do believe that urgency is important in this matter.
