So, here's a question for Mr. Chertoff. If you're going to have more border enforcement, why do you cut the border fence in half and leave New Mexico and Texas wide open, for people to come in?
And what magic wand are you going to have that's going to turn those people back who think they're going to come in and catch the third amnesty?
And I've looked at the stuff that they've put in the bill. They put in four airplanes. That means you'll have two on the ground; you'll have four airplanes working 2,000 miles of border.
Wolf, that's nothing. And Mr. Chertoff needs to answer a question. He was given a law on October 26 of last year, seven months ago, a mandate by the president of the United States and the U.S. Congress, both houses voting in overwhelming fashion, to build 854 miles of border fence.
And if you ask him today how much he's built, he's built precisely 13 miles of one layer of a double fence, meaning it's going to take him 40 years, at that rate, to build the border face.
Mr. Chertoff is charged with securing the border. And the one thing he's not doing -- he's appearing on lots of talk shows. He is not securing the border.
We need to secure that border. And let me tell you, Wolf. There's no reason not to do it. You just did a major special on the terrorist acts that are taking place around the world. We've got a 2,000-mile open border. And for some reason, this administration does not want to secure that border in a very simple way.~Duncan Hunter on CNN Late Edition.
