more smoke and mirrors

Bush signs a bill to build a fence:
Yesterday's signing, after the collapse of numerous efforts to produce a comprehensive package of new immigration laws, was deliberately timed to be as close to the 7 November mid-term elections as possible. The bill passed the House and Senate at the end of September and could have been on the President's desk four weeks ago.

but it's unfunded:
After all, they note that the 700-mile fence bill doesn't include a penny to actually build the double-layered barrier, estimated to cost anywhere from $2.2 billion to $9 billion.

What a balancing act, trying to please the bigots but keep the latino vote. The house of cards is crumbling.
