|Fantasy novelist:||Alright, time to create my fantasy world. Great thing about this genre is that I can make it anything I want. Could be based on any culture in any place from any time.

The bill has a provision that extends the concept of ‘the border’ to 100 miles [within] the southern U.S. border, but I think that DMZ could conceivably extend along our northern border as well, through most of Vermont as it now stands,” Noferi said.
The bill itself calls for increased training for any U.S. agents within 100 miles of “any land or marine border of the United States.” The also bill calls for more Border Patrol stations within the 100-mile band, for improved communications there, and for the use of surveillance drones."
