(b) (6) sent the below to (b) (6) I would assume this is for the same tasking? If additional info is necessary, let me I just know. (b) (6) ----- Original Message ----From: (b) (6) To: (b) (6) Cc: (b) (6) Sent: Thu Nov 01 19:00:37 2007 Subject: RE: Secondary Fence Request (b) (6)

Our original dashboard revealed that OBP had 10.4 miles of secondary fencing as of October 2006. In April 2007, OBP revised that baseline by including 12.5 miles of pre-existing IBWC erected fencing. This brought the secondary fence baseline statistic to 22.9 miles. During the remaining 11 months of FY-07, there were 4.7 miles of secondary fence constructed. The total amount of secondary fencing at the end of FY-07 was 27.6 miles

These statistics have been verified and accurately reflect the OBP-GIS generated baseline.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I will be out of the office on Friday, but will be available on blackberry.

(b) - Per our discussion, there is a request for the amount of secondary fence built since the SFA was enacted. SFA (6) enacted October 26, 2006, so we will need the total fence we reported that date (or as close to it as possible) was and the current amount of secondary fence on ground. We are aware that there was a rebaseline but since that number was the last one we reported on secondary fence, that is what we will use for this purpose. Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you for your help!

The Secure Fence Act of 2006 (Pub.L. 109-367 <http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi? dbname=109_cong_public_laws&docid=f:publ367.109> ) was enacted October 26 <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_26> , 2006 <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006> [1] <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Fence_Act_of_2006#_note-0#_note-0> in the United States <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States> . This act is one part of an immigration reform that President George W. Bush <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_W._Bush> has planned for the future. The act allows for over 700 miles of double-reinforced fence to be built across cities and deserts alike between California <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California> and Texas <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas> . It authorizes the installation of more lighting, vehicle barriers, and border checkpoints, while putting in place more advanced equipment like sensors, cameras, satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles in an attempt to watch and control illegal immigration <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illegal_immigration> into the United States <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States> .
