U.S. to arm border drones?

According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection report obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, the US is leaving the door open to add weapons to its drones patrolling its borders. Currently, customs has eight drones patrolling its northern and southern borders, and it also has two patrolling the Caribbean. Apparently, the US has no intention of slowing or curbing its ever-expanding drone program.
