U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers discovered an abandoned tunnel on a tip. Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents located a collapsed tunnel after receiving a report about a suspicious opening near the Raul Hector Castro Port of Entry, according to a statement from CBP Arizona. Although the tunnel collapsed roughly 25 feet from its opening, agents confirmed that it extended into the United States by 60 yards. It was located near a sewer line and apparently cut through a tunnel that was previously dug in the same location. Transnational criminal organizations (TCOs) use tunnels like the one found in Arizona to smuggle humans and narcotics into the United States. There have been well over 200 tunnels discovered along the U.S.-Mexico Border used for illicit purposes since 1990..
And those are just the ones discovered… As many of you know, we’ve been calling for the Obama, and now Trump, Administration to BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!...and to build it above, and below ground to prevent tunneling. Securing our southern border should be our federal government’s #1 domestic national security priority. Period! To read the rest of this story, click on the text above.
