Airborne Predators Patrol TX/Mexico Border Wednesday

Predators are about to be airborne on the border.  Predator flights out of Corpus Christi that will patrol the Texas/Mexico border take off for the first time on Wednesday. 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.

    What a sham! Since the drone operators will not be allowed to engage those violating the border these are just a waste of resources. This is nothing but a attempt by the Obama administration to hoodwink the public into thinking that action is being taken. (The administration is riding the reports of predator success overseas, and think that the public is not smart enough to realize that the rules of engagement on the border are not the same. Of course, since “news” reporters ceased long ago actually investigating stories, and now just pull items off the wires we can not expect any investigations worth a hoot.)

    The drone is a waste of money because the obama admin will now say don’t arrest the illegals unless they pose a clear danger. What a “danger to our way of life” so they can send money back to mexico. Get in line like many of my clients, file your tax returns, pay your taxes and live like an American. I am a latino and disgusted obama or napolitano have no balls!
