Arizona Border Fence Plan Stalled After 3 Years

"A plan by Republican Arizona lawmakers to build a mile of fencing along the border with Mexico using private money has stalled nearly three years after it was sanctioned by the Legislature.  Private donations expected to fund the project dried up after only a fraction of the funding was in hand, leaving the project far short of its lofty goals.  Lawmakers on a border security committee that met Wednesday acknowledged the state has received just $264,000 for the project, well short of the $2.8 million needed to build the first mile of fencing." - AP, Nov. 6, 2013.
