"Border Wars" on Nat Geo

Learn about border issues in the area of Nogales, AZ, and Nogales, Sonora, by watching Border Wars on the National Geographic channel on Thursday, March 7, at 9 pm (Pacific Standard Time).  Afterward you can access the show through the Nat Geo website and through YouTube.

Covering 2,800-square kilometres of unforgiving desert battleground in a rugged and remote frontier, CBP agents discover a high-level tunnel leading straight into downtown, confront drug cartel foot soldiers in the dead of night, and seize over U.S. $1.5 million in heroin. 

Border Wars patrols Nogales, Arizona, on the U.S.-Mexico border. Witness a Black Hawk helicopter team rescue illegal immigrants abandoned by their guides in the desert, ground agents encounter night-time gun fire, and officers dismantle vehicles in search of hidden compartments filled with drugs or other illegal contraband.
