Border Wars Video Diaries

Join series producer Nick Stein and the Border Wars production crew as they follow officers and agents of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. They protect the United States and Mexico border that runs right through the sister towns of Nogales, Arizona, and Nogales, Mexico; which are separated by a security fence. Every day thousands of men, women and children attempt to enter the United States illegally — some looking for work, some seeking a new life, and others trying to smuggle drugs or other contraband.
