To secure our borders, Homeland Security wants new technology, but they need money to pay for it that they may not have.
FOX's William La Jeunesse reports in our ongoing series on national security:
Homeland Security planning to slash patrols along the Southwest border. The agency would like to fill the gap with technology: long range cameras, radar and ground sensors that detect movement some 10 to 20 miles away. All those technologies are on display at the Border Security Expo in Phoenix. Problem is, the agency hasn't the money to buy it, leaving it unprepared for the wave of illegal immigration many expect when lawmakers announce a deal on immigration reform.
