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.
As much as I am for border enforcement, those drones can look north as well. hmmmmm.
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.
The drones will fire missles at border guards.
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
So are they going to just watch with them or load them?
There is more truth in that than not sadly.
They can use the drones to keep track of them and register them to vote.
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.
BUILD A F...G FENCE!!!
THEY HAVEN’T DONE THAT YET!!!
It worked in Israel..and it will work here, not perfectly but it is NEEDED NOW!
BUILD A F...G FENCE! HOW COMPLEX IS THAT?
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.
Ought to fly them armed with Hellfire missile on the Mexican side of the border and plaster any and all drug lords’ haciendas with out regard to who is inside them. That might wake up Mr. Calderone!
Here’s video of her statement: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2010/04/27/napolitano_aerial_resources_monitor_us-mexico_border.html
I doubt they'll let Obawan-Kenyobe do it either.
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.
Arm them and you might get somewhere.
Oh. That’s disturbing.
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.
Heck, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers helped build THAT wall...!!!!
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, 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 didnt work.”
Yeah, who wants to bother with an uncool, common-sense, lower-cost, low-tech, EFFECTIVE solution like a FENCE? ;-)
And, do what? Show people crossing so they can keep count?
That is god damned brilliant.
Please, kill that noise. Take that crap to DU.
They’ll do anything not to patrol the border ==
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.
Actually, this is merely an effort to get the most accurate count possible for the 2010 Census before the deadline kicks in.
And don’t forget they want to know how many to grant amnesty too. Because gosh darn it, rewarding criminal behavior sure is the smart thing to do.
Is this supposed to make me feel better or worse?
And who is considered the enemy: illegals hopping the border or concerned citizens trying to stop them?
What happens when the Mexican Drug Cartels shoot them down?
Obama is a Soros Drone.
“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.”
I bet they could find a bunch of guys to do it for about 100 bucks, as long as they don’t tell them what it’s for.
Domestic Drone Use Ping
Seeing is not the problem. Punishing is the problem.
Until there is punishment and severe lasting pain, there will be no end.
Sounds about right to me.
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”???
Unless they are armed with Hellfire missles or cluster bombs we are just p!$$!#@ in the wind.....
