An Israeli company, Elta, will install a radar system to monitor the U.S.-Mexico border for illegal immigration and drug smuggling.

Elta’s technology can identify potential human infiltrators from as far as 13 miles away and vehicles from 26 miles out. The U.S.-Israel agreement opens up a potential market “worth hundreds of millions of dollars” to Elta, according to

    More smoke-and-mirrors and vote-chumming from the corrupt and vile Obama regime. Anyone who is familiar with the US-Mexico border is aware that thousands of gullies and washes in that area act as superhighways for invaders and smugglers that are not vulnerable to radar detection. This is anther taxpayer ripoff. Comrade Obama doesn’t want to stop the onslaught, plain and simple. That miscreant ought to be rotting in prison.
