Via Reuters: Bush signs border fence bill

The legislation did not provide funding for the fencing, but simply authorized its construction. Part of the funding for the fence, $1.2 billion, was included in a homeland security bill he signed earlier this month.

Congressional Republicans had passed the legislation weeks ago but held off sending the legislation to Bush for signing so it could be used as an election-year tool.

Democrats called the legislation a political stunt.

Gee, why would they say that? Just because the bill doesn’t provide any money and because it was delayed until two and half weeks before the election? Perish the thought!

Of course, I consider the entire fence notion to be a costly inefficacious stunt, so what do I know?
