Militarization Of The Border

A lot of back-scratching going on. 
Since the U.S. House Unmanned Systems Caucus, otherwise known as the “Drone Caucus,” was founded in 2009 during the 111th Congress, General Atomics and other defense contractors have contributed to its members’ campaigns. Center for Responsive Politics records show that both co-chairmen have received contributions from the General Atomics PAC. Rep. Buck McKeon has received $64,000 and $7,400 has been contributed to Rep. Henry Cuellar’s campaigns. McKeon has also received $4,800 from General Atomics CEO Neal Blue, and another $4,800 from his brother Linden Blue.
Politicians serve their country serve themselves.
