Congressman John Culberson appeared on Houston's KHOU, Channel 11 to explain the very successful border security program he has mentored in South Texas called Operation Streamline. This program was developed in cooperation with local law enforcement, the local US Attorney's Office, the Federal Judge for this district and Texas Law Enforcement agencies.
The program, as reported earlier by TexasGOPVote.com, began in the Del Rio and Laredo Sectors a few years ago. As Culberson approaches the new congress, where he will have additional responsibilities and more authority, he hopes to expand the program from Brownsville to San Diego.

This program has resulted in a dramatic reduction in violent crime and in the number of illegal border crossings in this sector.
Border Security is National Security. Congressman Culberson has shown the federal government can accomplish increased border security when it puts forth a continued and consistent effort.
With the addition of electronic surveillance via drones and ground radar systems, more territory can be covered without a direct proportional increase in manpower. It will be interesting to see how this program works as it is expanded next year.
