Entire U.S./Mexico Border Patrolled with Drones

2010 Drones, Unmanned Aircraft Systems, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Remotely Piloted Vehicles - DoD, Army, Air Force, Navy, NASA, Homeland Security, Predator (DVD-ROM)
Beginning September 1, 2010 the entire southern U.S. border with Mexico will be patrolled by Predator Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) flights. Up until now there were no UAS flights on the entire Texas/Mexico border all the way to the Gulf.
(U.S. DHS) "The new, border-wide use of the Predator aircraft, comes on the heels of the recently passed Southwest border security supplemental legislation, which will provide two additional UASs that will bolster these newly expanded operations."
