Kevin Carlos, a supervisory patrol officer for ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), holds a shoe covering made out of carpeting used by smugglers to make it harder to be detected by Shadow Wolves agents as they crossed the Sonoran desert near Sells, Arizona, February 1, 2007. The Shadow Wolves, an elite group of Native American trackers that use skills handed down from the ancestral hunt is being tapped to play a larger role in securing the United States' borders.
