Carson Would Use Drones To Secure Border

On Sunday, Republican presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson said that he wants to use drones to increase surveillance along the U.S.-Mexico border in order to destroy the caves used by individuals who smuggle people and drugs--he said he did not support strikes aimed at people. Speaking on CNN's "State of the Union," he said "Read my lips. I said there are caves that they utilize. Those caves can be eliminated. I'm not talking about killing people. In no way, did I suggest that drones be used to kill people."

Carson toured the region last week, and local authorities told him they were completely outgunned, while receiving little assistance from federal authorities. Recently, Donald Trump has called for amending the Constitution to end the right of automatic citizenship for all people born in the United States. Carson also shared his support for deporting families who only come to the United States to have children in order to get U.S. citizenship. He also said that he doesn't view the term "anchor baby" as racist and called objections "silly political correctness."
