Smile, you're on illegal alien cam!

I'm not quite sure how effective this idea is going to work:
A US state is to enlist web users in its fight against illegal immigration by offering live surveillance footage of the Mexican border on the internet.

The plan will allow web users worldwide to watch Texas' border with Mexico and phone the authorities if they spot any apparently illegal crossings.

Texas is trying, but this program doesn't seem like it would be very effective. Of course, if it were to be combined with this program, I suspect it would be quite effective. Nobody would even die because the advance word would be enough to keep anyone from even trying to illegally cross the border.
