Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says they will be “providing critical aerial surveillance to personnel on the ground.”  Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says this will allow the entire border from California to the Rio Grande Valley to be covered by drones.  She says eventually there will be six predators patrolling the airspace along the border.
