Economic Impact of Illegal Aliens
$12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they still cannot speak a word of English!
During the year 2005, there were 8 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from other terrorist countries. Over 10,000 of those were middle-eastern terrorists. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin, crack, guns, and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border. http://tinyurl.com/t9sht <http://tinyurl.com/t9sht
Total cost a whopping $538.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR !
DHS Scaps Boeing's Billion Dollar Fence
According to Keith Johnson of the Wall Street Journal, the Department of Homeland Security will be scrapping the billion-dollar SBInet program. He reports in his January 15 article, “Homeland Security Scraps Border Fence,” that the D.H.S. will now return to more reliable, proven techniques.
“SBInet cannot meet its original objective of providing a single, integrated border-security technology solution,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said in a written statement. She said the new solution, which will include mobile surveillance systems, unmanned aircraft and thermal-imaging devices, was “tailored to the unique needs of each border region” and would provide a “more effective balance between cost and capability.”
In the News
Development and research on our mass area security program requires updating and researching current trends on illegal immigration and security threats. The IFT’s (Integrated Fixed Towers) and cameras will work at points of entry but here we are talking maybe a total of 100 miles of border. The US/Mexico border is 1999 miles long. In Arizona, New Mexico , and Texas there is 504,000 square miles of desert. There is more activity crossing the desert areas where there is little to no surveillance. This is where we will be most effective, and we will enhance other projects that are being tried. With what they are using at this time, they cannot cover this area and be cost effective. We can.
At this time we will sell the patent-pending technology and company for a substantially low cost compared to what is now being spent on Border Security projects. We are also developing several more mass area security ideas using the technology of earth minerals.
Arkansas company introduces unique ‘invisible fence’ solution at Border Security Expo
In one of the most unusual technology offerings at the 2013 Border Security Expo in Phoenix, AZ, Sentry Visions LLC, of Siloam Springs, AR, introduced its patent-pending concept of applying a fluorescent, non-toxic earth mineral-based material on road surfaces on the U.S. Mexican border in areas where there is a history of illegal border crossings.
According to Ron Hutcheson, president of Sentry Visions, the company’s fluorescent material, which draws radiation from the sun and glows during the night, clearly shows footprints and other traffic when disturbed and leaves a clear trail which could be used by Border Patrol agents in the states of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico to stem illegal border crossings.
In a conversation with Governmental Security News, Hutcheson showed photos of the fluorescent earth mineral and indicated that once it is applied on a “base road,” it will reflect clear footprints or other evidence of persons crossing the portion of the road where the material has been applied. He adds that the material experiences only a five percent loss of brightness during a 10-year period.
With the use of monthly graph and charting systems, Hutcheson argues, the invisible fence technology could enable U.S. Border Patrol to better focus it limited resources on the highest traffic areas.
Hutcheson expressed his opinion that the invisible fence technology using his fluorescent earth minerals could similarly be used successfully by military forces in hard to reach mountainous areas in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
According to Hutcheson, the company currently has partnership and advisory relations with Terra Pave International, Inc., PHD Chemistry Professor Bill Durham of the University of Arkansas. He says that the company is seeking additional corporate partners to continue developing the technology for use by the government and military both in the U.S. and internationally.
Hutcheson said he believes that a second phase in the development of the products would involve licensing and selling the technology for international use, as well as expanded commercialization for private usage by smaller security firms and hunters. Parties interested in discussing any aspect of the invisible fence and invisible border technology can reach Hutcheson on the Web at www.sentryvisions.com or by telephone at 479-365-2073.
Interview: “Fluorescent fence” could help US border security strategy, says Sentry Visions
29 Jan 2014
Securing the US’ borders to prevent illegal immigration, drug trafficking, terrorism and other threats “continues to be a major challenge,” according to a report from the United States Government Accountability Office. Estimates put the amount spent to secure the US border with Mexico at around $200 billion since the early 1990s, one of the largest areas of expenditure for the federal budget.
Sentry Visions LLC’s CEO believes the company’s patent-pending “fluorescent road” could be a solution to the ongoing problem of illegal border crossings the government is facing along the 2,000 mile-long border with Mexico.
The road, which would run parallel to the border, is comprised of an earth mineral-based material which absorbs radiation from the glows at night, revealing footprints and other kinds of traffic if disturbed. The material, which is non-toxic to wildlife and plants, leaves a clear trail which air and foot patrols can follow.
“The Department of Homeland Security spends billions every year on foot patrol, drones, cameras and sensors, and fences, but has still not managed to stem the flow of illegal border crossings through Arizona, New Mexico and Texas,” Ronald Hutcheson told Global Security Finance in an interview this week. “Add to that the face that large portions of the border are not under any type of surveillance, especially in the desert areas, drug cartels and other types of crime, and you will see there is a real problem.”
“Our invisible road technology would help U.S. border patrol forces focus their efforts and resources on those areas where there is the most traffic, once they have compiled relevant data as to activity at any given point on the border.”
Hutcheson said that he is trying to get the attention of U.S. homeland security and military agencies by highlighting the fluorescent road’s “low cost, low technology effective activity detection properties.”
“Our road, which can be up to 100 feet wide, costs $10,000 to $15,000 per mile to maintain each year, and does not experience any significant loss of brightness either,” he explained. “The existing fence costs 100 to 400 times that amount every year, and radars, drones, and thermal imaging cameras are equally as expensive to look after, upgrade and, importantly, to integrate with each other.”
“But we are competing with companies that have been around for much longer (Sentry Visions was founded four years ago) and have established relationships, so I am aware that we may need some help to get where we want to be.”
The Siloam Springs, AR-based company behind the technology is also seeking partnerships with fellow companies in the sector to continue developing the technology for use by the government, both at U.S. and international-levels. These partnerships could equally open the door to opportunities in the commercial sector in the near future, especially in the private security space.
