AUSTIN, Texas (Texas Insider Report) “It’s almost like implementing Dept. of Defense tactics and what’s been proven in the field and in theater, and Border Security is adopting a very similar scope,” said Nelson Balido, chairman of the Border Commerce & Security Council.

Texas Insider Balido-Brown6-15-15BIG“The system is built into and mounted on the bed of a large truck, and there are currently 44 of them deployed with Border Patrol throughout the country, including in El Paso and Del Rio.

“This allows them to manage these groups and watch them in off of the border, so there can be a safe resolution to the problem, and that actually saves lives,” Brown said.
