(Free Beacon) After refusing for days last week to shoot down China’s spy balloon, the Biden administration finally found airships they are happy to take down: surveillance blimps that monitor the southern border.
The Biden administration is taking the blimps, which allow agents to detect illegal migrant activity over long periods of time, out of commission due to funding cuts, Fox News reported. While there were 12 surveillance balloons in operation last year, only four remain.
Customs and Border Protection agents told Fox that the removal of the blimps, known in the agency as their “Eyes in the Sky,” will drastically hinder their ability to track illegal immigrants who evade detention at the border. As of January, there were 1.2 million “gotaways” since Biden took office.
The news of Biden’s groundings comes a week after the president waited days to shoot down a Chinese spy balloon traversing the continental United States. The aircraft was first reported on Jan. 31, floating over military and nuclear bases…Biden Finally Finds a Balloon He Wants To Take Down: Surveillance Blimps at the Southern Border
