The attached magazine article from 1938 can be filed in the "the more things change, the more they stay the same" folder". The article lists all the assorted means by which Mexicans have attempted to illegally cross over the Southern border, whether to smuggle others, import illegal drugs or for their own gratification.

"Dope has been smuggled across our Mexican border by submarine - pulled under the Rio Grande in sealed cans. It has been flown over in airplanes, even dropped from kites. On one occasion it was found tied in horses' manes and tails. It is often concealed in automobiles, more often tied to dogs who are trained to swim the river with it at night..."

Marijuana was becoming a problem in 1938, too.
