    US agents locate 600 yard tunnel under Mexican border

    Once again a huge hi-tech tunnel to Old Mexico has been uncovered. Seems like agents find several of these things every year. Just once, I'd like to see the agents cap off the opening on the American side, fill it with propane and ignite it, just to see which roof blows off on the Mexico side.

    Tucked inside one of a string of warehouses, hidden behind boxes of televisions and plastic three-wheel toys, under a concrete slab and down a 70-foot shaft, is a tunnel Mexican drug dealers hoped to use to move hundreds of pounds of marijuana and cocaine into the U.S.

    The problem, of course, is that they can't take any action against these people. Drugs, humans.....there is no penalty for moving them into the U.S.

    I seen a special on netflix about them. They said there are probably tons of tunnels with rails, lights, oxygen, everything. The only way they find them is when someone snitches

    That spot in Chula Vista and Otay Mesa has warehouse type buildings butting right up against the fence line. Strange, that any buildings were allowed within 100yds of the thing, back when. It would have made the task of sending underground incursions far, far simpler. As it stands, any number of the buildings arrayed against the fences can be the exit point for a tunnel. And that's just at the San Diego area. There's 1500+ miles of border heading east of that section.

    Seven tunnels in 4yrs have been found.

    Makes one wonder how many other tunnels exist without anyone's knowledge on that task force.

    Think of the money it took to complete that. Quite an investment. As long as there is a war on drugs.... Well you know the rest.

    Not sure why these tunnels seem to not get discovered until "someone snitches" with law enforcement having access to ground penetrating radar.

    We are using GPR equipped drones overseas, why not here?

    Me thinks high up on the food chain of our bloated gov is a desire to not stop it. 🙊

    And what pray tell would this Chinese or Soviet style illegal alien policy consist of Noway2? If it's anything like some of my ideas in the past all those people streaming across the Rio Grande sure wouldn't like it the first time they touched off a bouncing betty.

    It would not surprise me if we learned that the funding came from federal grants.
