Lets see, our country has been literally flooded with tens of millions of illegals, to the point where it's choking off our schools, jails, hospitals, social services, not to mention compromising and undermining our electoral process, as a tax paid 20 million dollar border protection helicopter plays a part in a high school dating game?
I’m not sure how far the base of operations is from this school, but it seems entirely possible this helicopter could been tied up for less than fifteen minutes, if the distance was fairly close.
The helicopters don’t fly 24 hours per day. This could have been after a shift, when the craft would have remained unused until the next morning. We don’t even know if the person paid for the fuel himself.
This is massive overkill over something that amounts to next to nothing.
One poster even mentioned the maintenance costs this would generate. Seriously, this is plain silly.
