The Center for Immigration Studies released a third documentary film on Monday in a series, this one entitled “Hidden Cameras on the Arizona Border 3: A Day in the Life of a Drug Smuggler.” The event was hosted by the Center for Immigration Studies and Women in Homeland Security at the Army-Navy Club in Washington, DC. The footage comes from two websites that set up hidden spy cameras along known illegal immigrant and drug smuggling trails: SecureBorderIntel.org and BorderInvasionPics.com. The Center says the documentary leads to the “inescapable conclusion is that hidden cameras reveal a reality that illegal-alien activity is escalating.”
This is Janice Kephart’s third web-based border film and it focuses on drug cartel travel methods through Arizona’s federally owned land. Kephart, National Security Director for the Center for Immigration Studies, obtained much of the footage for the camera film by traveling with her hidden spy camera guide into three drug running corridors in central Arizona. She was joined on the panel by Julie Myers Wood, former Assistant Secretary for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Department of Homeland Security for the national premier of the film.
Hidden Cameras 3 exposes the ways and means of the illicit drug trade specifically showing how drug mules successfully move 50 pound packs of marijuana through desert heat on foot into Arizona desert and 80 miles north of the U.S.-Mexican border until they reach the east-west I-8 corridor. The film includes hidden camera footage taken at night showing the drug mules moving quickly to meet a load truck on the I-8 highway.
