I didn't see any live stream on that website.

So, how do we know these videos are even current? They could have been taken 10, 15 years ago for all we know.

I've been to this site and it is infuriating to see so many entering illegally. If you and I know, Washington knows. Time for a changing of the guards.

Were you planning to go pose for us in real time in front of one of the cameras?

I fail to see where the OP stated that there was live streaming in the link he posted. What I did see was that just one location, one trail, registered 700 invaders of the US streaming across the border in just 40 days. There is a steady stream of infiltraters, and they are alive from the looks of it, so there's your "live stream".

Doesn't the BP use cameras? Can we still call in sitings from personal cameras? I've got cameras up in a couple locations.

You can take it for what you think it's worth. My cameras show me "real" video.

Those are real cameras at that site as far as I know. I don't need an Illegal to stop and hold up a newspaper with the date on it.

With your logic it's just html and those aren't real people at all, or maybe a cast of thousands paid to do it? I don't think it would be worth the trouble to try and hack frames of video?

It's very risky and expensive to put these cameras out as the smugglers will smash them if detected. The quiet cameras are very expensive and it's all but impossible to get night shots without infrared and not getting my expensive cameras detected and smashed.

By the way I use mine to locate game but the Illegals use the same trails. One of them is the Pacific Coast trail recently featured in local papers.

Would you accept a recent quote from Janet Napolitano? "There are around 800,000 illegal crossings per year now." This is down from previous years where the estimate was 1 million per year. Add to this 4 million foreigners who stay here per year after their temporary visas expire, and the 1 million guest workers per year who do not return....by CNN.

All the more reason to close/lock our southern border and use military force, if needed, to enforce things.
