U.S. helping build border fence … in Ukraine
To help “defend the newly imposed borders between Ukraine’s mainland and the Crimean peninsula.”
The recent flood of illegal immigrants across the southern border has caused many Americans to wonder why our country is seemingly incapable of border security.
A fence is in place in some areas while others are completely open. With that in mind, many Americans will be surprised to learn that the State Department is now funding the construction of a border fence in Ukraine.
Jeryl Bier of The Weekly Standard reported:
Feds Buy Border Fence … for Ukraine
As part of the U.S. Crisis Support Package for Ukraine announced by the White House in April, the State Department awarded a $435,000 contract to B.K. Engineering System in Kyiv for razor wire to help “defend the newly imposed borders between Ukraine’s mainland and the Crimean peninsula.” The contract was awarded on June 12, but was just posted online this week.
An $8 million “non-lethal assistance” package was announced at the same time as a larger $50 million aid package for Ukraine to “help Ukraine pursue political and economic reform and strengthen the partnership between the United States and Ukraine.” The razor wire (Concertina) is included under “[e]ngineering equipment, communications equipment, vehicles, and non-lethal individual tactical gear for Ukraine’s Border Guard Service” that was spelled out in the April Fact Sheet.
Meanwhile, back here in America, Mexico is protesting the presence of the Texas National Guard on the border.
Yahoo News reports:
Mexico protests Texas National Guard troops on US border
Mexico’s foreign ministry late Friday protested Texas Governor Rick Perry’s deployment of National Guard troops to the southern US border to halt the surge of child migrants.
Mexico “reiterates, in a firm and categorical way, its rejection of this measure,” read a statement from the foreign ministry.
“No circumstance at all or change in border security exists that justifies this measure taken by the state.”
The troop deployment “does not contribute in any way to solving the immigration problem,” and is inconsistent with US-Mexico talks aimed at “building a modern, prosperous and safe border,” the statement read.
The world has truly gone mad.

“defend the newly imposed borders between Ukraine’s mainland and the Crimean peninsula.”
Similarly, the Obama administration should support a fence on the border just south of SAN FRANCISCO and abandoning southern California.
After they are acknowledging that Russia is now the rightful owner of Crimea too.
Perhaps a fence should be built on the old borders and support the rightful ownership instead. You know, actually defending the US and its interests seems a foreign concept to him.
No, no, no. That’s just unpossible.
Why, we all know fences don’t work…!!!
Collectivist chant this all the time.
Silly, silly Alister…
This is nothing compared to the Billions of dollars we have given Mexico to strengthen its southern border.
And the Mexicans, in gratitude, repaid us by issuing special 72-hour pass-through permits to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens from Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, etc., to make it easier for them to get across Mexico and illegally into the U.S.
Near Perekop, there is an ancient ditch across the isthmus, designed originally to keep out the Tartar horsemen. It’s been improved over the years for this or that war and is still quite visible.
Or, as I continually say in this Age of The Anointed One: You simply CANNOT possibly make the S**t Up!!!
The prog’s capacity for enduring the cognitive dissonance brought on by their own moronic, contridictory beliefs and policies is truly a sight to behold.
