UAVs on Border

Fire of Liberty

It looks like US Customs and Border Protection has decided to beef up its ability to patrol the US/Mexican border by putting some extra eyes in the sky via a new UAV known as the Predator B. Though it's a long way from adding more border agents or what the Minutemen did in Arizona, the US Customs and Border Protection seems to be more pro-active in their efforts of preventing further incursion of illegals into this nation. I guess that when folks in the public and the media clamor as much as they have done on the Border Control being too lax in enforcing its laws, you have this response. Let's hope there's more of this to come in the near future.
