Border News: Obama May Have Mocked the Moat, But Did It Get Built?

PPPS (Ft. Hancock, TX)—On May 10, 2011, on his first trip to visit the border near El Paso, President Obama declared the border more secure than ever, and then went on to mock GOP opponents for wanting to move the goal posts all the time. 

He said "Maybe they'll want a moat. Maybe they'll want alligators in the moat."  

But PPPS has learned that the Obama administration, in their unceasing effort to secure the border, has gone on to make a mockery of the President's mock, and has actually constructed a 15-mile long border moat along the Rio Grande between Fort Hancock and Esperanza, TX (about 40 miles southeast of El Paso). 

Here is an aerial view of the new border moat obtained from Google Earth. 

Readers are encouraged to check out the entire 15-mile length on Google Earth.

PPPS has not yet confirmed whether there are any alligators in the moat.
