The US border patrol will press ahead with plans to enlarge its fleet of unmanned surveillance aircraft, despite embarrassing revelations about the programme which have emerged following a crash last year.

Will they be monitoring the Canadian border to stop people leaving?

As a proud Canadian, I need to say that we kicked their butts in 1812, and we can and will do it again if forced to.
There are two reasons why I say this.
1. All the smartest Americans (Oxymoron I know) have already left.
2. All the Canadians I know would rather die than to become American.

Wonderful! When do you start?

There was an article in one of the Arizona fishwraps recently -- http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/printDS/205019 -- which stated that marijuana "imports" of < 500 pounds were not being prosecuted. Article does not state how many of these capture- and- release shipments were detected using the roboplanes.
