Thanks and yes I agree let's offer up same to Ortiz's Office.David----- Original Message -----From:To: AGUILAR, DAVID V; SELF, JEFFREY D; COLBURN, RONALD S;Sent: Thu Dec 06 21:15:00 2007Subject: Re: USA Today editorial against border wallChief, Yes, sir. I will do both tomorrow morning and keep you informed.Given Congressman Rodriguez's evident frustration and comments in today's briefing (followed up withcalls from his staff after the meeting), it might be beneficial to extend the same offer to him as well -especially since he is one of our appropriators.----- Original Message -----From: AGUILAR, DAVID VTo: SELF, JEFFREY D; COLBURN, RONALD S;Sent: Thu Dec 06 19:16:37 2007Subject: Re: USA Today editorial against border wallCan you make sure that Congressman Ortiz and Congressman Cuellar get this information?Let me know when this has been accomplished.Second getback we had from today's briefing was that Chairman Reyes wants a briefing on Project 28. As does Congressman Cuellar relating to SBInet and/or technology that is going to be placed in Laredo.Can you set up these two events and keep Chief Self and apprised?Thanks,David----- Original Message -----From: SELF, JEFFREY DTo: AGUILAR, DAVID V; COLBURN, RONALD S;Sent: Thu Dec 06 17:27:25 2007Subject: FW: USA Today editorial against border wall

Chief,Here is the initial messaging concerning the issue of fence cutting through the campus.Jeff -----Original Message-----From:Sent: Thursday, December 06, 2007 5:05 PMTo: SELF, JEFFREY D;Subject: FW: USA Today editorial against border wallIn today's meeting the question came up on proposed fence cutting through the UT-Brownsville campus- here's the email traffic that I had remembered from back in August.-----Original Message-----From:Sent: Tuesday, August 14, 2007 7:32 AMTo:SELF, JEFFREY DSubject: RE: USA Today editorial against border wallGood morning.The August 10, 2007 article in USA Today perpetuated misinformation about fence bisecting a Texasuniversity. Last week, OBP contacted the sector to follow up on the issue, and the following providesadditional insight: Article stated:If the 153-mile portion of the fence between Mexico and Texas were constructed today, students at theUniversity of Texas-Brownsville might have to carry passports. Silly, you say? Well, part of the plannedfence would slice through the campus, leaving a part of it on the Mexican side, according to a mapprovided by the U.S. Border Patrol at a recent community hearing. The fence would also put the FortBrown landmark, the district office of Democratic Texas State Rep. Ryan Guillen and the bridge thatlinks Brownsville to Matamoros, Mexico, on the Mexican side, University of Texas anthropology professor Antonio Zavaleta told officials.Facts:There are no proposed fence projects on University of Texas-Brownsville (UTB) property. However,there are proposed projects that will border the UTB property.Dr. Antonio Zavaleta (PHD) was present at a public outreach session conducted at the Harlingen BorderPatrol Station on June 4, 2007. Dr. Zavaleta is a member of the UTB Board of Directors.spearheaded the event.Dr. Zavaleta was a vocal attendee and is also a border land owner in the Brownsville area.There were no maps shown as part of the town hall meeting, nor are Border Patrol Agents currentlyauthorized to show maps at meetings.Most of the information is based on the April 20, 2007 “leaked information” map. That map neverprovided close in detail, and would be considered out of date if it did.The link provided at the end of the paragraph brings the reader to another article, which doesn’tmention Zavaleta at all.Secure Border Initiative

But I agree that we should be vetting maps used at town hallscarefully.----- Original Message -----From:To:SELF, JEFFREY D<JEFFREY.Self@dhs.gov>Sent: Mon Aug 13 19:34:33 2007Subject: Re: USA Today editorial against border wallWhen I went to the town hall in Brownsville this spring, a lady at the meeting pointed out that herhouse was being drawn on the Mexican side of the fence (and pretty much in the river). Sounds likethe same issue here. Are we still using the same map in town halls as was released back in the spring?------ Original Message -----From:To:2007Subject: RE: USA Today editorial against border wallTexans raising voices against borderfenceBy Marisa TreviñoWhen President Bush signed the Secure Fence Act late last year, he probablythought it was a done deal. Yet, almost 10 months after the Department of Homeland Security was authorized to start enclosing U.S. territory, resistanceto the fence is growing, especially in Texas — and with good reason.If the 153-mile portion of the fence between Mexico and Texas wereconstructed today, students at the University of Texas-Brownsville might haveto carry passports.
