Increased Border Security Cost-Effectively

Using current technology and web based systems (instant messaging, groupwise, webcams) set up a site for .gov email staff such as Tower Officers in federal prisons to sign-in to the system, select assigned webcams of border security cameras, and report activity to the Border Patrol via an instant messanger.


(1) Border security would be greatly enhanced.

(2) Tower Officers at federal prisons would be providing more of a service to taxpayers.

(3) Border Patrol would have more staff available for patrol and response duties.


This suggestion makes sense because it is virtually cost free, and it directly enhances border security.


It is easly administratively authorized by the President should he desire to do so.

It is a cost-savings to the government and taxpayers.

It increases public safety.
