What a waste. It’s just another ruse to convince us they’re securing our borders. Why not simply install cameras at the borders to take pictures of illegals as they enter our country. That would be as effective as these drones. In fact, why not have the National Guard take pictures, since they won’t be permitted to apprehend illegals.

PHOENIX (Reuters) – The U.S. government will have unmanned surveillance aircraft monitoring the whole southwest border with Mexico from September 1, as it ramps up border security in this election year, a top official said on Monday.
Operations to end after November elections.

The cameras installed down there due just that right now. Their only use appears to be counting how many are successfully slithering across.

If they intend to use the intel gathered to actually go after the illegals that would be great. What is more likely is they will fly drones over areas least likely to be crossed and then say see there is no problem.

As long as the murders, rapes, kidnappings, ID theft, and credit fraud is happening to everyone EXCEPT our elected local/state/federal officials, their family members, and close friends -- illegal Entry is officially NOT A PROBLEM.

I'd rather use the drones to photograph our corrupt politicians taking bribe money from corporatists. The photos can be used as evidence against them after the revolution.
