Homeland Security nears decision on virtual fence

• AP
The Homeland Security Department is inching closer to ending a costly, problem-plagued "virtual fence" ordered by Congress four years ago to help secure the U.S.-Mexico border.

What was supposed to be a fence of integrated technology to keep watch on most of the nearly 2,000-mile border has ended up in use across about 53 miles of the Arizona-Mexico border at a cost of at least $15 million a mile.
