[WIKILEAKS] Border Walls Work: 2008 Obama Campaign Memo


The 2008 Obama presidential campaign acknowledged that borer barriers work, but they preferred to legalize illegal aliens and to give new illegal invaders citizenship.

Obama memo from September 7, 2008:

“Preserve the integrity of our borders to reduce illegal immigration.”

“Securing our borders will not solve the illegal immigration problem in isolation, but combined with an earned path to citizenship for the undocumented and new legal alternatives to unauthorized entry, some additional fencing could help get the border under control.”

In a section titled “Fencing”:

“Supports physical fencing along border under very specific circumstances, where it makes sense as a matter of security and to act as a deterrent to unsafe undocumented entry.”

“Additional fencing on the border is not a comprehensive solution, but it sometimes helps deter people from taking the risk of entering illegally.”


“Believes fencing should be built where necessary and agreed to in coordination with local governments, Indian tribes and done in an environmentally sensitive manner.”

“Supports additional personnel, infrastructure, and technology on the border and at our ports of entry.  Believes we need additional Customs and Border Protection agents with better technology and real-time intelligence.”
