State Senator Steve Smith Meets With Governor Jan Brewer to Discuss Harebrained Scheme to Build "Border Fence" Several Miles From Border

Steve Smith wants more of this -- several miles north of the border.
Governor Jan Brewer signed legislation earlier this month to create a state border fence with Mexico.

The bill she penned, sponsored by Maricopa Republican state Senator Steve Smith, does not designate Arizona tax dollars for the project. Instead, it's up to Smith to raise private donations for construction.

He met with Brewer earlier this week to chat about building the fence, according to press reports, and already the project is running into several hurdles.

Most land on the border is owned by the federal government, which is unlikely to allow private contractors to begin building a fence on their property, especially since President BarackObama recently stated the border fence is "basically complete."

So now Smith wants to raise donations for a border fence several miles north of the Mexican border.

That might not even be the most cockamamie part of it.

To build the fence several miles north of the border, Smith plans on asking ranchers in southern Arizona to allow the state to build its fence on their acres, according to the same report in the Arizona Republic.

Ranchers, of course, make their living off their land. And they have enough to deal with on their property without a fence cutting it up.

Illegal immigrants crossing over their ranches create a number of problems, which we reported on in a feature last summer. But it sounds ridiculous to suggest ranchers are going to give up their farmland for a fence that won't keep anyone out anyway.

That's exactly what Smith suggests Arizona is going to pursue.

The law will go into effect July 20. Smith plans to begin soliciting donations for his not-quite-border fence then.

Build a fence enclosed path from Mexico running north to Phoenix, run the fence around and enclose the valley.   That way we can be a part of Mexico and then all the illegals would climb over, or dig under the fence to get out and the illegal immigration problem would be solved.

Has she ever seen a map? We have a federally protected game preserve, a bombing range,  Organ pipe national monument, and a Reservation. There is little to no private land west of  Sonoita. This is where the biggest part of the problem is. In addition, there are few roads along the US side of the border west of Sonoita.

This is going to be a tough one for Mr. Smith, since most of those ranchers down there, harbour a Libertarian mindset. Meaning that they may tell Mr. Smith to "Fuck off" or "Don't Tread On Me". For them, State Government intrusion on their private lands is the same as "Big Governments" and Federal intrusion. No matter what the dastardly nativists and Sheriff Paul rant about daily. The ranchers may not comply. 

Good luck that Mr. Smith.

Ed, let's not confuse reality with political ambition. She is just working to garner votes for another term, should she be eligible to run. Little details like who owns what land are just annoyances, anyway.

I wonder if the flood of donations expected will actually be nothing more than a trickle? I was thinking about donating a dollar, but I spent it on a jar of peanuts at the 99 cent store..

T.C.The BLM is a branch within the Federal Government. They manage both state parks, federal lands, including tribal Indian lands placed into trust. But you bring up a good point. That would mean a violation of contract under said land leasing laws, if Mr. Smith had his way with the ranchers. His plan won't work.
