In the News…

Representative Lou Correa of California, ranking member of the House Border Security and Enforcement Subcommittee, introduced the Emerging Innovative Border Technologies Act along with his colleague Representative Morgan Lutrell of Texas.

The legislation would direct the Department of Homeland Security to develop and submit a plan to Congress that leverages artificial intelligence, machine learning, and nanotechnology. The purpose of this is to “enhance, or address capability gaps in, border security operations.”

“Border security means keeping drug and human traffickers away from our communities — and new, bleeding-edge technology that is already available for commercial use would give our hard-working officers the tools they need to keep us safe,” said Congressman Correa. “Through this bipartisan effort, Congress will better understand how our officers can use new technology to stop smugglers, as well as identify and respond when migrants are crossing in remote and deadly conditions, and hopefully deliver them the resources they so desperately need.”
