DISCOVERY CHANNEL GOES UNDERCOVER WEDNESDAY MARCH 13 IN UNDER SIEGE: AMERICA’S NORTHERN BORDER
NEW YORK, NY – Discovery Channel is going undercover with the Department of Homeland Security and investigating one of the most explosive territories in the United States – the northern border – Wednesday, March 13 at 8 PM ET/PT in UNDER SIEGE: AMERICA’S NORTHERN BORDER.
Discovery Channel is taking viewers inside the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as they patrol the largest and most challenging border in the United States – the northern border. The DHS has seen some of the most intricate terror plots unfold at our northern border, including the Millennium Bomber, the first World Trade Center attacks and the Underwear Bomber. The 863-mile stretch of border on either side of the Detroit’s Ambassador Bridge is particularly challenging as it has thousands of landing spots, narrow crossings and tremendous boat traffic, which make this explosive region nearly impossible to control. Every day, illegal money, guns and drugs, much of which can be tied to terrorist organizations, pour across this massive border while the DHS takes to the air, sea and land to protect us against these dangerous threats. Discovery Channel is giving a never-before-seen glimpse into the Operational Integration Center, where a 40-foot wall of monitors stream live data feeds of the entire border, keeping officers updated. Follow agents from the DHS as they patrol the water, guard the checkpoints and track down criminals in order to keep our country safe from foreign threats on UNDER SIEGE: AMERICA’S NORTHERN BORDER Wednesday, March 13 at 8 PM ET/PT.
