Unmanned drone sought for Texas-Mexico border – Congress Daily

House Homeland Security Border Subcommittee Chairman Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, has asked the Homeland Security Department to deploy a new unmanned aircraft along his state’s border with Mexico.

“The southwest border region, specifically El Paso to Brownsville, Texas, would benefit greatly from a remote piloted aircraft,” Cuellar wrote in a letter to Customs and Border Protection, which is part of DHS.
