Why Does DHS Need Cameras On Such a Small Lake?

Here’s my story; I live a stone’s throw away from Lake St. Clair, which is quite small in comparison to the great lakes, and I got to work near where DHS has installed some pretty powerful cameras close to the Canadian/American border. From where the tower was installed the Canadian shoreline is clearly visible. When these camera’s were installed I had the opportunity of talking to an “agent” (if that’s what you call them) about what they were capable of, he told me that the cameras could read the letters on the beer you are drinking on your boat at a quarter mile. Sweet, now I’m being watched when I’m trying to enjoy myself on the lake. The claim is that these cameras are for border patrol, to help stop illegal aliens from crossing from Canada to America. I find this somewhat odd, recently have I seen a large increase in border patrol vehicles in my neighborhood, and now this motion tracking camera business? Are there THAT many people trying to cross the border here? Has drug smuggling gotten this out of hand? I can only wonder…
