An aerostat balloon has been deployed by Customs and Border Protection in Nogales, Arizona. Its expressed purpose is to surveil the US-Mexico border 24-7. It is 22 meters long and flies at 3,000 feet. It is located one mile from the border, next to a residential neighborhood. Some Nogales residents and local law enforcement fear that the blimp’s positioning is threatening the privacy of American citizens.
