The National Geographic Channel's hit TV show Border Wars is kicking off a fourth season of shows Monday, July 9. The reality show follows U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel as they perform their border security mission throughout the U.S.
The new show is titled, "Rio Grande Reefer." Nat Geo says it follows Border Patrol agents as they fight back "against the criminals who use the Rio Grande to cross the border with their contraband."
The channel has created 36 documentaries starting with the pilot in January 2010 called "Last Defense." According to the producers of the show the series "follows the officers and agents of U.S. Customs and Border Protection as they scour the inhospitable landscape at one of the busiest border crossings in the country, seeking to fight terrorism and intercept illegal entrants from the air, on the ground, and at the ports of entry."
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
