The United States' Border Problem: Canada
Under Siege: America's Northern Border (Discovery Channel, 8pm) - Every day, money, guns and drugs pour across America’s northern border
into the United States. Even more terrifying, many consider our northern
border to be the focal point for illegal crossings by individuals with
ties to terrorist organizations.
Charged with protecting our borders is
the Department of Homeland Security, and nowhere is their job more
challenging than along the 863-mile stretch of water on either side of
Detroit’s Ambassador Bridge. Here, thousands of landing spots, narrow
crossings and tremendous boat traffic make this newly explosive region
nearly impossible to patrol.
It’s up to the brave men and women of the
DHS, armed with latest technology, to patrol the water, guard the
checkpoints and track down the criminals in order to stem the tide and
keep our country safe from foreign threats.
