Vote, he$$, one of them was elected President.

I recommended this to one of my congresscritters several years ago, but for the southern border. I haven't heard they're planning to fly drones in the south yet...

#7 From the CSM: "The Border Patrol's sector in Tucson, Ariz., unveiled the first drone on Sept. 29 [2005] after some testing earlier in the year. Todd Faser, Border Patrol spokesman, says more than 1,000 illegal immigrants and over 400 pounds of illegal narcotics have been caught with its help.

The UAV will be operated by a Border Patrol agent acting as the pilot, who sits in a cockpit-like control station at Fort Huachuca, Ariz. The aircraft is flown by remote control and equipped with an electro-optic sensor that can send back images, day or night"

#8 And each one of them probably costing the
taxpayers the same as 100 Cessnas with
a pilot AND observer...
