In this episode of Border Wars: At the San Ysidro port of entry, officers craft an undercover sting operation to try to apprehend people working for a human smuggling organization. Officers allow an illegal immigrant with fake documents through the pedestrian port of entry in hopes of catching the people who are guiding her through, but they must be careful not to let this undocumented woman disappear into California’s second largest city.
