    How does using drones to patrol the border to prevent smuggling of narcotics, weapons and human beings in any way proof that they see political protest as a national security threat?

    Also--assuming that they're unarmed, what exactly is wrong with using drones to patrol the border in areas known for smuggling?

      peaceful relationship with the USA for over a century, as a terrorist threat, then it follows that Homeland Security would also see the peaceful, non-partisan OWs protests as a threat too.
