Episode Summary

Border Patrol
In many ways, America's borders are like battlefields. As the world's wealthiest nation, the US, is the choice destination for smugglers and illegal aliens. Many of them will stop at nothing to gain access to the American Dream, including jumping its borders. Entrusted with stopping them is the Immigration and Naturalization Service's Border Patrol. Created by an act of Congress in 1924, we'll see how the Border Patrol has grown from horse-and-buggy to high-tech.moreless

      • Narrator: America's borders, in many ways they're battlefields. Every day a high stakes game of hide and seek, cat and mouse takes place along them. As the wealthiest nation on Earth, the United States is the most prized destination for smugglers and illegal aliens. Many of them will stop at nothing to gain access to the golden American dream, including jumping its borders. From icy stretches of the Canadian border to the sweltering desert along the Mexican boundary, the United States Border Patrol is entrusted with stopping them. Their job is complex, intense and often bloody. See them in action next on The Enforcers: The Border Patrol.
