Summary
At San Ysidro, 45,000 vehicles per day enter the U.S. from Mexico. This ABC News program focuses on the high-stakes struggle between smugglers and customs officials as each group tries to outwit the other. Rudy Camacho, southwest border coordinator for the U.S. Customs Service and actor in the movie Traffic, spells out the details of interdicting the drug flow while a former drug trafficker explains how to evade detection by drug-sniffing dogs, deceive state-of-the-art X-ray machines, and even bribe customs officials. Then, 2,000 miles away, three teens in one of the wealthiest, most privileged counties in America talk about how easy it can be to buy drugs
