    One of the articles says that they want weaponized drones in order to immobilize targets.

    That makes me sick to my stomach, especially given how we've seen tasers abused by police.

    This is a license to treat people like hunted animals.  

    I'm reminded of that movie, District 9. Or Brazil. Or any number of science fiction type genres.  

    Seriously, why would we ever agree to such a thing?  I'm afraid that this immigration bill will be used to advance such things, exploiting the xenophobia about people crossing the border, and it inevitably will be turned against the population at large eventually, particularly a protesting population. Does anyone doubt that?
