EXCERPT:

PELOSI: “Let’s be clear -- you said, why don't you put -- you will be seeing many things unfolding in the next few days about what our next bills will be on the floor. But In case I wasn’t clear, 90 percent of the drugs coming into the country, come through the ports of entry. Let’s use resources to expand the ports of entry. You have to base — this has to be evidence based, not notion mongered. And those ports of entry need more personnel. Nearly 3,000 employee vacancies, positions not filled on the border. And some of it is because of the quality of life. They need more infrastructure to do their jobs in terms of ports of entry, water supply and the rest. And then we talk about technology. As I said several hundred million dollars, ranges from a half a billion to $700 million for the technology to scan the cars coming through the ports of entry. And that is to detect guns. It’s like an electronic dog almost to detect drugs, guns.”
