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 on this part of the border. It is a walkway and stairs. twitter.com/jasoninthehous...— Jason Chaffetz (@jasoninthehouse) April 3, 2013
No fence. You can walk across the border, with handrails twitter.com/jasoninthehous...— Jason Chaffetz (@jasoninthehouse) April 3, 2013
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.
