U.S. Begins Patrolling Mexican Border with Drones

Washington, Sep 1 (Prensa Latina) U.S. drones began patrolling the Mexican border today, in a measure by the White House responding to demands by the opposition, in combination with a migration reform process.

The so-called drones are aircraft that are remote-controlled from land, and will begin operations on Wednesday from a military base in Corpus Christi, Texas.

The secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, explained by telephone conference on Monday that the aircraft would fly over the 3,200 kilometers of the dividing line between her country and Mexico. “This is another major step on the way to border security. The drones are an important tool to ensure our safety”, said Napolitano.
