Description

The series examined the vulnerability of America's borders despite the millions spent to secure them after September 11, 2001. Stories focused on smuggling networks that channel thousands of illegal immigrants from 'special interest countries' (nations identified by the government as fostering terrorism)into the US; on the so-called 'catch and release' policy that frees large numbers of illegal immigrants with a court notice-to-appear that many ignore; and on the continued lack of monitoring on large stretches of the U.S.-Canada border, which has allowed some serious breeches.
