What a deterrent. Drones armed with non-lethal munitions. This is better than a wall.

all i want them "armed" with is heat sensor camera's. Nothing more needed.Call the BP and the drones can stay overhead, unheard until all are caught.

wouldn't it be cheaper if we just enforced the laws against hiring illegal workers and the problem was solved?

Blimps would also be more efficient. Using less power letting them stay in the air longer. Can hold more electronics/other powersupplies.

The military, and drones are technical weapons so needed on the pouros border it's not funny. Non Hispanic Border patrol officer's that can't be bought off, but our Military coming back from the middle east. Drones and other superior technology will change the border once and for all. They have to prove to Americans they can stop the invasion before anyone is willing to talk about amnesty.

All you have to do is enforce the laws against hiring illegals and the problem is solved....proven fact.

just look at when the economy tanked and the jobs dried up, so did border crossings..immediately.

the border patrol will tell anything they think will save their jobs...
