Protecting the U.S. border

Security system can sense crossings

Glenn Spencer, president of the nonprofit border watch group American Border Patrol, is hopeful the state will pursue a new border security system, known as the Sonic Barrier, which can sense people, vehicles, aircraft and even tunneling within 200 yards of the U.S. / Mexico border.
On Thursday, Spencer appeared before the Arizona Senate's Committee on Border Security, Federalism and States Sovereignty in Phoenix to present details on the system. He did so in his role as founder and president of Border Technology, an Arizona corporation.
Components of the Sonic Barrier, including batteries, solar panels and analog / digital convertors, could be linked into a five-mile continuous stream. A small computer and an antenna would send the information to a central collection site.
If fully implemented in Arizona, either state or local personnel, including paid staff or volunteers located anywhere in the state, would monitor the system and when they detect illegal immigrants crossing the border, they would notify the U.S. Border Patrol.
American Patrol Report Comment
This system could bring the border under control – once and for all. That would be a time for celebration - wouldn't it? Why isn't the Southern Poverty Law Center cheering?

on TV recently. Glenn Spencer is truly an American patriot as well as a great organizer and entrepreneur.

Brilliant!

We need this system for all of our Southern border, even if we have to pass the hat to pay for it. I'm sick and tired of criminals coming into my country illegally and being given a free pass by our government to not pay taxes, skip out on their bills, and take jobs away from Americans who end up on welfare and unemployment, all of which adds to the tax burden of the already overburdened working Americans like us. The reason the SPLC and other liberal groups aren't jumping for joy about this is because illegals are a large part of their core of support, and if we shut our borders they'd lose a lot of their reason to exist.

correct matty..

Have you guys all noticed the anti immigration adds on TV.. the premise for them is that with the economy slumping and jobless rate high the last thing we should deal with is illegal immigration.. hard to argue, but im afraid we're going to have another (disastrous) term for O if we can't get excited about a candidate to oppose him..

Ok troops, off to PHX to play dodge car..see ya all in the pm..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Border security

Didn't the government spend millions on an electronic border watch system a while back that never worked?

LOL

Yeah, leave it to our government to buy from the lowest possible bidder. Probably someone named Crazy Achmed.

But how does it differ from GSR (Ground sensing radar) that the military has been using for years? Maybe more sensative, but nothing revolutionary or new tech.

Nothing new under the sun as the old saying goes. However, it's leaps and bounds better than letting illegals continue to crash across our borders unabated like we've been doing for decades.
