In late September, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) in Washington, D.C., released Hidden Cameras on the Arizona Border 3:  A Day in the Life of a Drug Smuggler.  The film is CIS national security director Janice Kephart's third web-based border film, this one focusing on drug-cartel travel methods through Arizona’s federally owned land.  Kephart obtained much of the footage for the film by traveling with her hidden-camera guide into three drug-running corridors in central Arizona.

Hidden Cameras 3
exposes the ways and means of the illicit-drug trade by specifically honing in on 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 also includes hidden-camera footage taken at night of drug mules moving quickly to meet a load truck on the I-8 highway.

Kephart's second film in the series released in July 2010, Hidden Cameras on the Arizona Border 2:  Drugs, Guns and 850 Illegal Aliens, with extensive hidden-camera footage of drug smugglers and illegal aliens, has received extensive press coverage on Fox News and its affiliates, and more than 540,000 YouTube views.  The first video on the subject, Hidden Cameras on the Arizona Border:  Coyotes, Bears, and Trails, focuses on the illegal-alien traffic and immense negative environmental impact on the Coronado National Forest from illegal alien smuggling and has received over 70,000 views to date.
