Once again “We The People” are reminded that dangerous criminals, drugs, and terrorists are pouring across our southern border.
A new drone video captured the images of a group of six illegal aliens crossing the U.S. border from Mexico into the Laredo Sector. Agents using the technology found the criminals carrying large bundles of marijuana into the U.S.
Laredo Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Carl E. Landrum tweeted a video from a Small Unmanned Aircraft System (SUAS). When agents responded to the area, Landrum said they found 300 pounds of smuggled marijuana.

Operators of the SUAS coordinated with the agents to guide them directly to the location of the smuggling activity, Landrum noted.
Similarly, Del Rio Sector agents utilized technology in what Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens called a “force-multiplier” to apprehend 168 migrants illegally crossing the border near Eagle Pass, Texas.
These folks didn’t want to be caught.
Near the city of Eagle Pass, 168 subjects attempted to cross illegally under the cover of darkness.
Technology gives our men & women an advantage, ensuring that we can apprehend them…day or night.
We call that a “force-multiplier.” pic.twitter.com/MchDa6tbR1

The utilization of these types of technologies enables Border patrol agents to spend more time on actual border security incursions and less time patrolling wide-open spaces along the border.
“Technology gives our men & women an advantage, ensuring that we can apprehend them…day or night,” Chief Owens tweeted.
