TO CHICAGO TO NEW ORLEANS IN PURSUIT OF LAWBREAKERS
"What kind of grades did you get in recess?" � Upon return from eight months abroad, a convicted sex offender is nabbed at O'Hare airport on an outstanding warrant because he may have failed to register as such. At the checkpoint in Falfurrias, Texas, a canine alerts his agent to a false wall in an RV hiding a stash worth over a million dollars. At Honolulu International Airport viewers will meet one of TSA's Behavioral Detection officers, Sean Weeks-Freeman, who is specially trained in observing body language for clues to suspicious passengers. In New Orleans, ICE agents head out on counterfeiting raids of a store and a flea market selling false goods, and a Coast Guard pilot remembers the heartbreaking rescues of her first week at work, during Hurricane Katrina. At the Buffalo, New York port of entry, a young Canadian woman who describes herself as a model and dancer is questioned -- is she going to New York City to visit friends or to drum up work?
