Since posting last week’s assessment of the pilot episode of “Homeland Security USA,” The Eye heard from some Homeland Security officials urging him to watch the second episode, because the show would get better. (The Eye vows to watch each episode of at least the first season to provide his take on the show. Stay tuned!)
This week’s episode was much more emotional, with a special focus on immigration. Producers once again focused on the Blaine, Wash. and San Ysidro, Calif. border crossings, where Customs and Border Protection officers dealt with various incidents, including mistaken identity, illegal immigrants smuggling children and a Cuban woman seeking political asylum.
An incident at Detroit’s Windsor Tunnel border crossing demonstrated how CBP cooperates with local law enforcement agencies and occasionally deals with tough situations that involve longer hours and name calling.
