Senator Hillary Clinton told the New York Daily News she wants U.S. borders secured with a wall or fence. She favors a legalization process for the millions of illegal aliens already here.
Clinton envisions a two-stage plan in which border security is beefed up, followed by legalization efforts in a year or two.
"A physical structure is obviously important," the New York Democrat and possible presidential contender said. "A wall in certain areas would be appropriate," she said, endorsing a high-tech "smart fence" that could spot people approaching from 200 or 300 yards.
At the same time, she welcomed tougher enforcement of federal laws punishing employers who hire illegal immigrants.
Here is something the New York Senator and I can agree on, build a wall to secure the border first, then we can debate what to do with the 12 million illegals already here. The wall should be substantial and effective, like Israel's 25 foot high wall, not one the illegal aliens have no problem crossing.
