An Arizona legislator wants the state to spend $30 million for a high-tech surveillance network near the U.S. border with Mexico.
Sen. Bob Worsley, R-Mesa, said the “virtual fence” consisting of 200 radar-camera units would monitor cross-border movement by people and vehicles to see if the federal government keeps its promises to secure the border.
“My proposal is just to monitor,” Worsley said. “Trust but verify.”
