UPDATE: As Margie in Austin points out in comments, this bill merely authorizes the fence to be built. It doesn't authorize payment for the fence.

The “Secure Fence Act” has everything to do with motivating the right-wing base, and nothing to do with securing America’s borders or passing comprehensive immigration reform.
