Congressmen form Bipartisan ‘Border Security Technology Caucus’ to Combat Border Crisis

Four U.S. Representatives have worked together to create the “Border Security Technology Caucus.” In a bipartisan coalition, Republican Tony Gonzales of Texas, Democrat Vicente Gonzalez of Texas, Republican Chuck Fleischmann of Tennessee and Tim Ryan of Ohio announced Friday the caucus will be the first to find technological solutions to help aid our southern border crisis.

Initiatives such as adding ‘Autonomous Surveillance Towers’ that enable detection of migrants without the need for border agents to be present will help authorities better allocate resources. “Border patrol agents are asking for this,” Republican Representative Gonzales told Newsweek. “And they’re pushing hard.”

He noted the morale of agents is very low, and drug cartels have increased their technology presence and intelligence. He told Newsweek that agents have seen small drones fly across the border and drop illegal drugs, going back and forth “all day long.”

Gonzales also said the agents have no tools at their disposal to combat this technology. “I’m a cryptologist by trade, a cyber guy, and in the cyber realm, you get obsolete very fast,” he added.

The Democratic Representative Gonzalez told Newsweek he met with former President Trump on the matter, as well as developers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

“I had many conversations with President Trump about using cutting-edge technology on our border, and I used to use the word of having a ‘virtual wall’ through cutting-edge technology,” said Gonzalez.

“I’m for secure borders and I’m for immigration,” he added, “and I think that the best way to do it is through cutting-edge technology that we already have.”

“The fact is, we just need to control the border the way we have for generations now and keep it safe and have an orderly process for folks who want to come across,” said Democrat Representative Gonzalez.

“I think that this caucus will be able to see technological ideas and advances that now exist that we can present to the appropriate committees on this issue,” he added, “and do it in a bipartisan way.”

By combatting drug smuggling technologies and introducing equipment that makes it easier to detect people being smuggling across the border, the two lawmakers said that America can better crack down on cartel influence.

Majority of Americans believe cartels have more control over border than our government

The Vice President of the United States claimed, only days ago, that the U.S. southern border is “secure.” Not only did her comment receive severe pushback from lawmakers and border agents and agencies, but the American people don’t buy her rhetoric.

A poll published Thursday by RMG Research shows a majority of Americans “believe cartels have more control over the southern border than the U.S. government.”

Sixty-one percent of registered voters surveyed said that cartels had greater control of the border, compared to 19 percent who said the government has more control. Twenty percent of respondents were “not sure.”

National Review reports:

The poll surveyed 1,200 registered voters from September 20 to 21, and was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen. The margin of error is +/- 2.8 percent.

The majority of voters surveyed, 54 percent, responded that the federal government is not “seriously trying to secure the border and reduce illegal immigration.”

Sixty percent of voters said the “failure of the federal government to secure the southern border” is a bigger problem that governors like Ron DeSantis sending illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, and 63 percent said it is “hypocritical” for sanctuary cities, like Martha’s Vineyard, to complain when illegal immigrant are sent there.

Another poll by CRC Research obtained exclusively National Review showed that 63 percent agree that sanctuary cities like Chicago, New York City, and Washington, D.C., should share the burden of having illegal immigrants with border states.

The rampant hypocrisy of Democratic lawmakers was on full display after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sent 50 illegal immigrants to the Martha’s Vineyard, the liberal playground vacation destination in Massachusetts.

Within 24 hours, Democratic lawmakers in Martha’s Vineyard blasted the Florida governor for being “cruel,” then gave the illegal immigrants shelter and food, before putting them on busses and taking them away; ridding their town of the burdensome migrants they claim to support.

Washington, D.C., mayor Muriel Bowser has also said her city “is not a border town,” is “not Texas,” and doesn’t have the infrastructure to handle this type of and level of immigration to our city.”

The poll also shows voters believe ending illegal immigration is important. 83 percent of respondents said it was important, 55 percent said it would have a positive effect on the economy, and 44 percent said it would “significantly reduce crime.”
