LG's Sticky Question - How much will border security cost?

With all the cries for "Secure the borders first, THEN we'll discuss immigration reform" I have to ask one question:

"How much will it cost to secure our borders?"

I emailed this question to Tom Tancredo, one of the most vocal on border security.

No answer from Mr. Tancredo.

Has he even thought about it? Or perhaps Mr. Tancredo knows but doesn't want to use the word "trillions".

If you have a congressman who is hot-to-trot for border security, please ask him/her this question: "How much will it cost to secure out borders?"

Let's not give up this key question just because they don't want to answer. If your congressmen gives a believable answer, please share it with us.

And don't let them give you a lowball initial cost for a few thousand troops or a few hundred miles of fence. We need to know how much it will cost for the full 2000 miles plus the southern seacoasts.
