Border Security Stocks

Two interesting US Border Security stocks are Flir Systems (FLIR) and LaserCard Corp (LCRD). Flir makes thermal imaging systems and infrared camera systems. Some of their cameras are used in airports but they are also used by the military and the US Border Patrol. One of the greatest dangers to Border Patrol is the pitch black nights in the desert. The only way they can safely perform their jobs is with thermal imaging.

LaserCard makes optical memory "smart" identification cards. This would be a good play on a guest worker progam.

The US Border Patrol has been greatly underfunded for decades and FLIR and LaserCard could benefit from additional appropriations.

Note: I have no position in LCRD or FLIR
