It talks about the length to which some people go to hide drugs, but at about the 1:15 mark the public affairs liaison says “money seizures are always good.”

CBP has great capabilities in detecting and seizing unreported, smuggled, or structured currency into or out of the United States; CBP can and does target people for money seizures based on factors like, origin or destination, length of stay, time of year, along with obvious factors like nervousness or obvious signs of deception.
