The Homeland Security Department will use unmanned surveillance aircraft and other technological upgrades in its ongoing effort to protect the southern border of the United States.
The department said Wednesday it has obtained Federal Aviation Administration permission to operate unmanned planes along the Texas border and throughout the Gulf Coast region. Customs and Border Protection will base a surveillance drone at the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station in Texas.

Surveillance alone won’t do jack shit unless you’ve got firepower.
All “surveillance” does is film the sleazy little mutherfuckers as they sneak over the border. I’ve seen those videos. They don’t seem to be too worried about their crime being recorded. No one stops them.
Once the illegals get used to the Predators flying around, they’ll simply wave and flip the bird at the goddamned thing before and after they climb the fence.
How about some increased ground enforcement to go along with that, DHS?
