Here’s what Rep. Jason Chaffetz, (R-UT) found on the U.S. border near Yuma, Arizona. No fence, but a walkway and stairs. pic.twitter.com/AepousiI7C. With all the news about amnesty and comprehensive immigration reform, the border with Mexico is being over-run with illegals like never before.
New technology to spot border crashers is troubling. Not because it doesn’t work, but because it works so well that Border Patrol agents are shocked to see how many are getting by.
“It’s a match made in heaven for border security,” said a former U.S. law enforcement official.
He said the radar had helped Border Patrol agents watch migrants and smugglers gathering on the Mexican side of the border before they start trekking north. But not all of the agents are happy to get a precise head count for the first time of how many people they are missing.
“The rank-and-file guys are afraid it will make them look bad,” the official said. He spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the program are not public.
The system is being tested along with military-grade camera towers and surveillance blimps developed for use in Iraq and Afghanistan in an effort to provide more accurate coverage of remote border areas.
Just from what we already know, the ‘Gang of Eight’ is going about any “reform” backwards if they don’t put securing the border FIRST. That is, BEFORE any other legislation is discussed. Not to do that will be leaving the welcome mat out for illegals.
