President Obama’s open border policy is not only putting Americans in danger, he is allowing drugs and guns to be smuggled across the border. One would think a president who boasts the need for gun control would take stronger actions at the border rather than go after law abiding American citizens.
More than 1,000 cameras have been installed on farms and ranches along Texas’ 1,200-mile border with Mexico. The cameras have been strategically placed in areas that have not been secured to monitor illegal activity.
Some carry guns as they cross the border, but agencies have been able to seize large numbers of the weapons following the installation of the cameras.
The system led to the apprehension of nearly 30,000 suspects, and has also slowed down cartel operations and drug smuggling.
Border guards apprehended nearly 30,000 suspects and have led to 88,400 pounds of drugs being seized in 2014 as part of Operation Drawbridge. These two suspects were detained after they were found carrying 260-lbs of marijuana across the border. For every one they catch, it is presumed many get away.
Daily Mail reported that cameras placed along Texas’ 1,200-mile border with Mexico have helped to capture the stream of illegal immigrants sneaking into the country on a daily basis.
The network of more than 1,000 motion detectors, similar to those used to film wildlife, have been placed strategically in areas that have not been secured – where Mexican citizens can cross and evade capture with ease.
The system has also had a significant impact on Mexican cartels and their ability to smuggle narcotics, people and stolen vehicles between the two countries.
In spite of the these images, a federal judge in Texas refused to lift a temporary block on a White House immigration plan.
‘This innovative use of technology has proven to be a force multiplier in detecting the smuggling attempts along the border, which is critical to interdicting criminal activity occurring between the ports of entry.
‘Any time law enforcement interdicts a smuggling attempt, we consider it a significant gain in the fight against the cartels and their operatives.
‘The collaborative law enforcement efforts of Operation Drawbridge have bolstered our ability to combat the exploitation of our border by these ruthless criminals.’
Infowars catches a drug smuggling operation at the U.S. border. Four young men carried very large packages on their backs and frantically threw them into a vehicle before they turned and swam back across the Rio Grande River into Mexico.
Just before they were spotted the illegal immigrants smuggling drugs into the U.S. two border control vehicles drove away creating a suspiciously convenient opportunity for these kids to bring, what seemed to be, millions of dollars of drugs into America.
