GOP Measure Aims to Secure Mexico Border

WASHINGTON - Some US Senate Republicans Wednesday sought to win passage of a $3 billion plan to beef up security along the border with Mexico.

The budget-busting GOP measure would be added - over White House opposition to a pending bill to fund the budget for the Department of Homeland Security.

But Republican sponsors such as Judd Gregg of New Hampshire say securing US borders is as important a priority as fighting terrorism and the war in Iraq.

The move comes in the wake of the collapse in the Senate of President Bush's immigration plan.
