Border Force USA: The Bridges 2

Over half of America's southern border is created by the Rio Grande, a murky brown river that snakes its way between Texas and Mexico.

A total of 28 bridges cross the river, linking the United States and its southern neighbour.

Every day 250,000 people, 12,000 cargo trucks and 5,000 railroad cars cross the bridges for a multitude of reasons. Some legal – and some not.

The Department of Homeland Security division responsible for the bridges is CBP – Customs and Border Protection.

For the first time, a TV production company has been granted unrestricted access to these bridges, the processes and the technology that the CBP deploys on its mission to keep America safe.
