SEND IN THE DRONES: PREDATORS TO FLY ABOVE TEX-MEX BORDER Tue Apr 27 2010 19:39:41 ET

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told a Senate hearing Tuesday that unmanned aerial drones will soon fly through Texas skies!

"Big Sis" declared that over the past 15 months, federal law enforcement initiatives have made the border more secure than in any other time in history, the SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS reports in Wednesday editions.

The new "predator bees" have the capability to fly at altitudes used by commercial aircraft, and are designed to enhance intelligence capabilities of federal, state and local law enforcement.

But a recent analysis of the use of unmanned aerial vehicles found that they were twice as likely to crash as manned aircraft, according to the Congressional Research Service.

These "drone" only have the ability to tell you something is happening on the ground. You still need boots on the ground to stop the illegal activity.

Yes, by all means let us use the most expensive method we can dream up and after we have thrown away several more billion we will throw up our hands again and say well we spent all this money on enforcement and it just didn’t work.

here’s a thought, protect the border by having boots on the ground and then seeing as it is illegal to be in those country illegally then go after them

what the hell is a couple of drones going to do.

it takes half an hour sometimes to get boots to the area where they are coming in and what about the rest of the border

she is one dope just like holder who goes after this bill but lets the black panthers off even when there is video evidence

I hope the next president goes after those black panthers too as they should also investigate how the hell is bozo and holder ignoring muslims terrorists and black racists

Wait a minute...Napolitano has been bitchin' about Arizona violaing "civil rights" of illegals by "questioning" them, and now she sends PREDATOR drones - the kind used in Afghanistan to kill the enemy - to fly over the border?

Washington D.C. has turned into "Jonestown", and the kool-aid flows like water. They're all nuts.

SEND IN THE DRONES: PREDATORS TO FLY ABOVE TEX-MEX BORDER!

I don't know about flying predators, but I think its a GREAT IDEA to send all those 0bama-supporting statist marxist lennonist stalinist drones to the border. Maybe a good wind will come by and blow them all across forever.

This is just more smoke and mirors! We don’t need the government to ‘watch’ the illegals streaming across the border 24/7..WE WANT THEM TO STOP THEM!!

Every hour since 1/20/09...we have another outrage from this adminstration.

Seriously, how much can it cost to just build a wall like the one in Israel? Probably much cheaper than the health care bill will end up costing.

One section of the border near Tucson had 250,000 arrests, and 750,000 successful entrances of illegal immigrants.

Who needs a drone? Just take a walk. They have to be everywhere in those quantities.

Bambi doesn’t like Hispanics. Muslims in general don’t like them either.

What about stopping a few illegal Africans, Chinese or Middle Eastern folk? They’re where the real danger lies. And believe me, they’re coming across the borders, because AZ is a prime stop on the human smuggling line.

If you want this law to be more credible, don’t target Hispanics. Go after illegals in general (who may be Germans, Brits or Aussies, believe it or not).

I am disgusted by the anti-Hispanic stuff here. I’m not in favor of illegal immigration from anywhere, but there are many people here so obssessed with their hatred of Mexicans that they will be quite thrilled when Obama raises the LEGAL quota for Muslims to the point where most of our major cities will have reached the Islamic tipping point in about 2 years. But as long as you can stamp out Mexican busboys, I guess you all will be happy.

Hey! The drones can drop registration forms and pencils. The US can provide rest stops and registration drop boxes every 100 yards so the undocumented can document themselves and be ready to vote Democratic.

Yes, lots of comment about Mexicans... but its because they make up the VAST number of illegal aliens. So, hell yes, a lot of people don’t like them. If we had huge numbers of any group breaking into our country, most wouldn’t like them either. Its not that they are Hispanic, its because Hispanics make up the majority of illegal entrants into this country.

What I don't get is this, why do we make it so complex when such simple solutions exist. Don't worry about the border. Just shut down all handouts to illegals (medical, food, education, EVERYTHING), and start throwing people in jail who employ them. Also make it illegal for charities and churches to support them in anyway.

No freebies, no jobs.. they will deport themselves. Cheap, easy and effective.

I remember you from the Shamnesty threads, if I’m not mistaken!

Keep screaming that mantra of racism! No-one is saying ONLY enforce the laws against illegal Hispanics/Latinos/Mexicans. We want the laws enforced for ALL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS — no matter WHERE they come from!!! ESPECIALLY in regards to those numerous illegals here from terrorist sponsoring states!

I don’t know what you are talking about in reference to the “anti-Hispanic” stuff. In fact, the comment from penelopesire contains NOTHING regarding ethnicity!

I’m so tired of people accusing us of racism for wanting our borders closed and our laws enforced.

Again WHO is targeting “Hispanics”???
