Letter to Boehner and Tancredo



FYI, Here is a copy of the letter I sent to Tom Tancredo but to which he didn't reply. I just sent a copy to John Boehner. I wonder if he'll reply?

Feel free to copy-and-paste this email and send it to your congressman.



Dear Representative Boehner,

I manage a blog called LiberalGrace.com and am writing a series of articles about the costs of border security.

Since you are, perhaps, the highest profile advocate of border security I hope you can answer this fundamental question.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO SECURE THE BORDER?

I don't need an exact cost, a ballpark estimate will do.

But I'm not interested initial costs of a few thousand troops or a few hundred miles of fence. I want the real, on-going cost of the whole project:

* Initial costs for building a wall and prisons.
* On-going costs of patrolling, arrest, repatriation, etc.
* Costs of guarding the coasts within boat range of Mexico.
* Cost of financing this with debt.

Can you provide this information to me?

Thank you very much.

Sincerely,

[signed]
