Multiple law enforcement officials have told me that the U.S. is no longer calling the shots on our southern border between Arizona and Mexico. They say Mexico’s drug cartels decide who crosses.
Sunday on Full Measure, we travel to the border to show you America’s erratic approach to border control. In regions heavily trafficked by the drug cartels, the border fence is more marker than barrier. In some places, it’s nonexistent. We’ll show you startling surveillance video of smugglers easily navigating the border fence and marching freely through the U.S. desert, carrying backpacks filled with marijuana, heroin, opium and meth. The drugs then move to places like Kansas City, Chicago, Detroit and New York City.
You asked for it: factual reporting on the border. You’ll find our first of several reports this Sunday.
