I request any and all reports, documents, analysis or memorandums pertaining the effectivity of using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) otherwise know as drones, in the border with Mexico to interdict drugs and illegal immigration. Please include number of flight hours flown for every year between FY 2006-2012, as well any and all documents, analysis and reports on malfunctions reported during that period. Please include any and all documents, analysis and reports that have been produced by your agency about if the use of UAVs has increased productivity in securing the border.
