McClellan and the Anniston Army Depot, the area's largest employer. In fact, the facilities are here because private citizens collected $130,000 during World War I and bought land for troops to have a place to train.

The plan, which reflects the Reagan Administration's commitment to bolstering border enforcement, is a direct outgrowth of the sweeping immigration reforms approved by Congress in 1986.
