Tennessean editorial on proposed border wall

The Tennessean published an editorial on a proposed plan to build a wall on the U.S./Mexico border:

"Forget the cost of a border fence, which the Bush administration puts at $8 billion. Forget the fact that other walls in history - the Berlin Wall comes to mind - succeeded only at being monumental symbols of oppression."

"A fence wouldn't work. It wouldn't prevent people from renting boats and sailing to U.S. ports. It wouldn't prevent them from entering the country from Canada. It wouldn't prevent people from tunneling under it, flying over it, or blowing up pieces of it and walking through the rubble."
