When the Biden administration took office and canceled the Trump wall, it inherited a lot of state-of-the-art surveillance equipment that was going to be employed alongside the physical barrier. This equipment, bought and paid for, now rests in warehouses, piling up monthly storage charges. The situation on the southwest border is serious, some say critical. States and localities are responding to a wave of border crossings by implementing local surveillance and security measures. Much of the excess equipment could be provided by the administration to the states to enhance their efforts to improve local security and safety. I have written more on this subject here.
