The immigration overhaul framework top senators released Monday relies heavily on more drones to patrol the Southwest border as a key way to control the flow of illegal immigrants.
“Our legislation will increase the number of unmanned aerial vehicles,” the senators said in their framework, saying they also hope to boost border patrol agents and surveillance equipment.
The proposal doesn’t say how many drones would be added to the federal fleet, but the reliance on drones could be problematic at a time when some in Congress are calling for a review of how law enforcement uses them.
