Where's the Fence?

Great political ad.

The commercials show three women driving along a desert road. They stop and peer at the saguaro-studded vastness.
A voiceover narrator intones, "Last year, Congress authorized 700 miles of fence along the southern border. So far, just a few miles have been built. Now, Congress and the president want to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens instead of securing the border. Call your senators and give them a message."
Throughout, a shrill-voiced woman asks, "Where's the fence? Where's the fence?"
Then the women spot three Hispanic men running across the road.
The woman shouts, "Where's the fence?" The men shrug and scamper away.
