Texas Congressman Ralph Hall (R) introduced legislation to help keep U.S. borders secure on Tuesday.
The legislation would focus on developing technologies to improve detection and prevention of drug traffickers and terrorists.
Officials say it would also help keep illegal immigrants from entering the United States.
In 2005, U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended more than a million people attempting to enter the country illegally.
