New Borkowski Border Technology in Action?
Mark Borkowski is the man in charge of acquiring technology for Customs and Border Protection. -- In recent months his Integrated Fixed Towers project has run into trouble and most are out of action pending testing, so he may be casting around for solutions. -- Yesterday, ABP's Hermes drone caught sight of an innovative approach that may have come out of his office. -- Apparently this technology works by dragging tires behind a Border Patrol vehicle to make a smooth surface. Agents come back later and look for footprints. -- Unless the aliens wear carpet on their feet, there is a chance of seeing something that might help them find the suspects. -- Watch this incredible video of high tech tire dragging in action! -- (These are used tires, so the cost is minimal compared to $20 million for each of Borkowski's towers.) -- Since it would detect people immediately rather than hours later, the technology behind SEIDARM would do a better job than dragging tires, but Borkowski nixed that idea four years ago.

Swamp Stumped: Congress's Schedule Too Full of Must-Pass Bills, Can't Take Up DACA Re-Amnesty Vote 
Congress' gridlocked calendar will likely prevent amnesty advocates from reincarnating the DACA program before President Donald Trump formally ends the amnesty in March 2018. -- But there's little chance that a new push will succeed because Congress' September calendar is packed with must-pass bills.

NYT Uses Texas Hurricane to Gin Up Front-Page Sympathy for Frightened Illegals 
The front page of Wednesday's New York Times was properly dominated by the damage Hurricane Harvey is wreaking in Texas.

The paper spread its own fear-mongering on the fate of illegal immigrants fearing a Trump crackdown, although being in the country without authorization is a prima facie violation of the law.......
