Group of Fifty Illegals Spotted by UAV
Sierra Vista, Arizona -- According
to reliable sources, the Predator B unmanned aerial vehicle was
put to work this morning in Cochise County, Arizona, one of the
busiest human smuggling corridors in the U.S. Right off the bat,
the UAV spotted a group of fifty suspected border intruders near
Ash Canyon in the Huachuca Mountains at around 7 am (PDT) Monday
morning, Oct. 24. Border Patrol Agents had some difficulty locating
the group because of their lack of GPS systems. American Border
Patrol has long supported
the use of UAVs and sophisticated GPS units. As of 9:30 am
the agents were still working to apprehend the group.
