Mollie Halpern: The FBI is combating crime along the 2,000 miles of the nation’s Southwest border with a threat-focused and intelligence-driven approach.
Kevin Perkins: One of the things we are trying to do along the border involves what we’ve put out, we refer to as hybrid squads.

Perkins: The end game is an ability to have a complete threat picture that’s based upon solid intelligence.
Halpern: …that way the Bureau and its partners can mitigate threats from the Southwest Border like drug trafficking, gang violence and human smuggling.
Perkins: Terrorists can potentially come through. It is definitely an area that we have a significant interest in, in the human trafficking end of things, so that we can protect the national security of the United States.
Halpern: That’s what’s happening at the “FBI, This Week.”
