Drones, agents to increase
from The San Antonio Express-News
Unmanned aircraft and new agents deployed to Texas and Southwestern states will provide blanket surveillance to better secure the border and clear the way for Congress to tackle immigration reform, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said. Additional unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, were included in a recently passed $600 million border security bill. They will be a "force multiplier" to the ranks of Border Patrol and Customs agents, which also will increase by 1,500 personnel, Napolitano said in an interview with the San Antonio Express-News.
