    In this episode of Border Wars, we travel to the Rio Grande Valley in the southernmost tip of Texas. Along a sixty-mile stretch from McAllen to Brownsville, drug smugglers and illegal immigrants risk their lives to cross the floodwaters of the Rio Grande and make illegal entry to the United States. National Geographic will follow the men and women of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection as they protect this hot zone of illegal drugs and human trafficking. Agents pursue a pickup truck loaded with drugs ferried from Mexico, uncover a huge stash of heroin during a routine vehicle inspection, and attempt to rescue illegal immigrants caught in the floodwaters of the Rio Grande.moreless

    At the southernmost tip of Texas is the Rio Grande Valley - a vast and sparsely populated region. As Mexican drug cartels expand their reach north of the border, the US Department of Homeland Security must rely on every available resource to find and apprehend smugglers and illegal immigrants. Border Patrol agents - tipped off by electronic sensors or covert surveillance - chase illegal immigrants through the dense brush of the river valley in vehicles or on foot. At the Falfurrias Station, smugglers bury drugs deep inside the toxic chemical cargo of tanker trucks, requiring highly trained Hazmat teams to uncover them. And at the seaport in Brownsville, shipping vessels from across the globe are scrutinized for threats ranging from bomb-making materials to deadly insects which could decimate US agriculture.moreless

    National Geographic's ripped-from-the-headlines Border Wars special, Murder on the Lake, explores Mexico's drug war and confronts one of the most serious threats to American security today. Our cameras return to the scene of David Hartley's murder on the otherwise placid looking Falcon Lake, and retrace his final hours through the eyes of his grieving widow Tiffany. Expert interviews explore how David's suspected murderers, the Zeta cartel, operate along the Texas/Mexico border, funneling drugs and illegal immigrants northward-ready to kill anyone who strays into their path. David's murder has brought into focus the growing fear that the violence may be heading north.moreless
