These 'preditors' are just a lot of flash for the politico's who say we are securing the border. Unmaned and unarmed survelance craft are useful on the border...but in no way replaces building a good 'double fence'(like below San Diego), and boots on the ground (we could use more).
-I'm sure there are unmaned ultralights that could acomplish the same mission on pennies on the dollar.-It wouldn't hurt if the politico's actually supported enforcing the laws we already have...but I think it is too late. We will need even more stringent laws to even begin to curtail the illegal immigration/drugs/human smuggling/corruption problem here in the United States.

If you missed Nat Geo's "Border War" you'll see the drones in action and what they really do. I support this program 100%.

I'm sure we have plenty of old claymores laying around somewhere. Let use them up.

This is an excellent use of our tax dollars. I'd much rather spend the money on expensive drones than feeding lawbreakers and their anchors.

Illegals need to stay out of our country, and any expense to make sure they do is justifiable, including war. Invasion by Mexico is a reality, one which the globalist Socialist traitors in Washington have fostered. The enemy is among us, and more want to come. They must not be allowed a further foothold on our soil.

What is the point. They are not stopping the damn Mexicans.No different than putting the army there and then telling them they can't do anything but watch.

Why do we spend billions of dollars policing the borders to keep out these parasites and then spend billions on benefits for those already here!!!???
