The battle lines stretch for the thousands of miles, and sometimes all that stands between the combatants is a flimsy metal fence — or nothing at all. National Geographic's critically acclaimed series Border Wars follows officers and agents of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and their critical battles at the most treacherous border crossings between the U.S. and Mexico.

    • 1. Seize and Destroy
    • Drugs, guns, cars and money are just some of the items confiscated on a typical day by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). But what happens to this contraband after it is seized? In a special episode, Border Wars reveals what happens to all the loot. Everything that CBP confiscates at the border must be handled with care: stored, accounted for and transported with the utmost security, and disposed of in a safe and legally mandated manner.

Four feet beneath Nogales, Ariz., agents crawl through a claustrophobic drug-smuggling tunnel, knowing they could come face to face with heavily armed criminals. Trains, with a myriad of hiding places, are also becoming a favorite place for cartels to stash drugs. If the officers aren’t careful, they could easily miss a load.

    • 9. Going Underground

But any footprints they find appear and disappear, frustrating the agents’ search.
