Disappearing Act For the Border’s Invisible Fence

A so-called invisible fence along the U.S.-Mexico border that was intended to keep a high-tech eye on the area is about to be unfunded by the U.S. government.

No decision has been officially made, but with the two-month extension the U.S. government gave Boeing about to run out, several members of Congress expect the Department of Homeland Security to rule soon on the fate of the invisible fence, the high-tech portion of the $4.4-billion Secure Border Initiative.

Homeland Security spokesman Matt Chandler would only say that a new direction for the program “is expected shortly.”
