Lighted only by the Milky Way, last

and the Border Patrol apprehended 18 illegal aliens just north
of the Mexican border in Southeastern Arizona. While ABP has
performed this feat many times in the past, this is the first
time the entire event was shown live on the Internet. Americans
could sit at their computers and watch as the drama unfolded.

ABP used night vision scopes, an infrared

thirty minutes to reach the aliens. "I believe this is the
first time in history Americans have watched the entire process
of stopping illegal aliens live and at night," said Glenn
Spencer of ABP. --- After detecting the group at a distance,
the ABP camera team moved into position for close-ups. At first
they couldn't find the aliens as they had laid down in the woods.
Patience and determination paid off and the aliens were located
in heavy brush and woods.
