Mayors from Texas border cities carried a united message to federal officials Wednesday: don't fence us off from Mexico.

After being largely ignored in last year's pre-election frenzy, they found a receptive audience and signs that a full 700-mile barrier may never come to pass.

The mayors were united, predicting the fence wouldn't get built.

"Mexico's our neighbor," Laredo Mayor Raul Salinas said. "You don't treat neighbors like that."

I'll support a fence for Mexico as soon as they start building one on the Canadian border.
