I'm OK With It

When I first saw this headline:

U.S. Proposes Unmanned U.S.-Mexico Border Crossing

I thought "Great. Way to undermine border security."

After considering it, though, it's probably a good idea, or at least not a bad one.

This thing will have cameras, it'll be monitored, and it'll make life easier for law-abiding people who have their passports.

I think of it as being like a self-checkout lane at the grocery store.

Sneaky illegal types & smugglers will still cross elsewhere so they aren't seen at all. The existence of the proposed border crossing won't affect them one way or another.
