    Texas puts border patrol cameras in the public domain.

    An interesting idea, I'm surprised this slipped below the RADAR until now.

    Big Brother is you?

    Illegal immigrants; many of whom are hardened criminals such as the members of MS-13, and potentially Al Qaeda members. Illegal immigrants are destroying our cities.

    You need to get out more. Perhaps you haven't heard about the border conflicts where authorities were backed down by armed immigrants and drug runners.

    I suppose they envision tens of thousands of people sitting on their fat asses every night with a beer in their hands, watching border security cameras on the internet as a form of entertainment.

    It'll probably work. Convince people it's 'fun' and they'll work for the government for free. Unfortunately, it'll only be fun if those rascally Mexicans really try to cross the border frequently enough to make watching all those cameras exciting. Americans seem to have a particularly lousy attention span, so it'll have to be action-packed like Cops to keep people tuned in.

    I can see it now: the government starts sending fake Mexicans across the border in the middle of the night, just to keep their legions of unpaid camera-watchers excited enough to keep watching.

    This is actually a little too Orwellian for my tastes.
