On Thursday. Sen. Ted Budd, R-N.C., questioned Gens. Gregory M. Guillot and Laura J. Richardson at a Senate hearing asking about the number of drones documented at the southern border and their risks to homeland security.

“The number of incursions was something that was alarming to me as I took command last month,” Guillot told the senator. “I don’t know the actual number – I don’t think anybody does – but it’s in the thousands.”

He continued, “I’ve talked to Customs and Border Protection, who are responsible for the UAS incursions on the border, along with DOJ. And they put the number at thousands.” 

Budd zeroed in on the time frame the general was referencing in regard to the “thousands” of drone incursions.

Guillot responded, “I would say in probably over a month we could probably have over 1,000 a month.”
