Republican Congressman Shows "Walkway and Stairs" Across Arizona's Border With Mexico

Republicans seem to be getting VIP tours of the border lately to see how the border-crossing magic is made.

First, Senator John McCain was on a tour of the border last week when he watched a woman hop right over that "danged" border fence, and now, a Republican congressman from Utah is showing off a walkway that goes right over the border, from Mexico into Arizona.

"No fence," Congressman Jason Chaffetz's staff posts on Twitter. "You can walk across the border, with handrails."

As McCain's posting showed, the fence didn't really do a great job of keeping a person in Mexico, but, in Chaffetz's case, it obviously means that authorities know this little path exists -- if that means anything.

More photos from Chaffetz's trip, including checkpoints and whatnot, can be found on his Twitter account.
