Editorial Reviews

National Geographic goes beyond the controversy and political wrangling of illegal immigration to see the real-world battles being waged by the men and women responsible for securing our borders. Every day, they intercept an illicit flow of narcotics, money and weapons headed both north and south across the border. The risks have never been higher, with the violence of the Mexican drug wars a stone's throw from U.S. soil and criminals armed with increasingly sophisticated technology challenging the most rigorous countermeasures.

In Season 2, Border Wars takes viewers to the front lines of some of the busiest and most dangerous border crossing points into the U.S., including those in California, Texas, and Florida, to experience firsthand the everyday battles fought by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers and agents.

This is a powerful reminder of how unstable our border is. This is not something to see with sensitive people due to the graphic content. It covers the Rio Grande drowning's that are all to common in south Texas. I highly recommend this to any law enforcement fanatics!

I own all the season of Border Wars and let me tell you the Reality is amazing. The show is a about what happen in real life on every port of entry in the US. Mostly focus on Southern border because the majority of the drugs and illegal immigrants enter over there more easily than in any other port. Also there has been some episodes on different airports and land borders like New York, Puerto Rico, etc. The series show you how the Customs and Border Protection - Field Operations, Border Patrol and Air Marine risk their lives to protect the US from illegal drugs, illegal immigrants, illegal firearms, etc. It shows everyone the different types of concealments drugs cartels use to try to pass the drugs thru the border. Also it shows you how human trafficking works and the smugglers operation. It brings you the real life of drugs in all US, also it shows you how illegal immigrants try to enter to PR in small boats and how they bring big loads of drugs on boats to PR. It's an amazing series and I recommend everyone t see it. It's the true and real life we are living everyday and what will happened to us if those people didn't catch what they are looking for on time. Thanks to CBP - OFO, BP, AM also ICE and Police Dept. from all states for their work.

I love this National Geographic series. I still watch this and season one. Shows some of what the agents do in their daily fight to protect our borders. A nice look into their job.

A few of the questionable tactics used in apprehending or pursuing guides, smugglers, illegals or armed-adversaries:

They serve a warrant on a suspected smuggler's house, yet they don't have a battering ram or even a hooligan tool to breach the door. One of the guys tries to bash through, slamming his shoulder onto it; after the rake they found (unbelievable) couldn't jimmy the door open.

Two agents patrolling a dangerous area where there's the possibility they might encounter heavily-armed men, who would outnumber and outgun them, carry only 20-round mags in their M4's or only one of the two is armed with an assault rifle.

A night raid at a crossing point, trying to catch illegals with the help of a helicopter overhead with FLIR, is wrought with confusion as the chopper pilots can't differentiate the illegals and the pursuing officers. This could have been easily solved if the officers each had an infra-red strobe attached to the back of their web-gear or assault vests; making for quick identification.

So is it a matter of money and training? Money has to be one, when you see these older civilians decked out in Digital Camo uniforms, policing their own property (in camo jeeps and trucks at night) due to the damage the illegals cause, crossing their farms in the process of getting into the cities. Not enough agents to cover all the areas.

The irony of the whole "War On Drugs" is the that Americans are the biggest consumers of illegal drugs than any country in the world. So it's really the fault (read DEMAND) of the millions of Americans, who's voracious appetite for these drugs is the only reason the "Supply" is met by the drug cartels from the South. The drug cartels wouldn't exist were it not for us here in the United States.
