FRESNO, CA--Terry Halberton has put a wall up along his property line designed to prevent undocumented neighbors from crossing into his yard.
"It's cheaper than the National Guard," Halberton said. "I got tired of all the backyard illegal crossings. If you can't secure your yard's border, then do you really have a yard?"
The previous open border policy of his yard had resulted in millions of unplanned visits involving excruciatingly tedious conversations and awkward goodbyes. The wall is intended not to deny neighbor visits, but to control them in an orderly fashion.
"Neighbor visits will now be processed in the order received and come through documented channels, that is by the front or side door rather than sneaking in the back door," he said.
