Arizona's "Joint Border Security Advisory Committee" is looking to start building the dang fence on the border as soon as possible, and they've got enough money to build a good 528 feet of it.

The committee is not even close to taking in enough private donations to build the first mile of the projected 200 miles of fencing, but they say it's starting up soon.

They haven't actually done very much in the two years of the committee's existence, but members of the committee hope to get the thing going by the end of the year.

Should that happen?
