An official with a group the founders of Facebook and Microsoft created to push for immigration reform says it won't happen without some sort of action by the new Congress and President to secure the border with Mexico. Mark Delich (DEL-itch) believes, real or perceived, something will need to happen;

DEL-itch spoke at the recent American Farm Bureau Federation Convention in Phoenix and told a packed audience that some farmers might not see any relief soon in finding foreign, temporary workers. Many industries such as agriculture rely on temporary workers for jobs native-born Americans just don't want to do, like detassling corn or picking fruits and vegetables;

DEL-itch, with the group F-W-D-dot-U-S, says the United States already spends $20 billion dollars a year for border security. He envisions the use of more drones and remote sensing as at least two ways border security might increase.
