A truck loaded with canned jalapeños is searched at the Laredo port of entry and found to have a spicy load - 3,109 pounds of marijuana worth $3 million. As the Rio Grande waters rage after Hurricane Alex, agents barter with a human smuggler who won't give up the immigrants he transported across the river and who are now stranded in turbulent waters. Later, agents raid a suspected stash house, and four immigrants are apprehended at a motel.
