Donald Trump made headlines recently calling for increased domestic security measures, namely a “database” of Muslims in the country. Now he has a new tactic in mind: getting people to spy on their neighbors.

“The real greatest resource is all of you, because you have all those eyes and you see what’s happening,” the business mogul told the crowd at a rally in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Tuesday night, according to The Hill. “People move into a house a block down the road, you know who’s going in,” he said. “You can see and you report them to the local police.”

He acknowledged this wouldn’t be a perfect system: “We know if there’s something going on, report them. Most likely you’ll be wrong, but that’s OK.”
