Mexico has just discovered two massive and elaborate tunnels leading from Otay Mesa, Tijuana, to San Diego, California. The tunnel system is used by the Sinaloa cartel, according to the office of the U.S. Attorney General.
The sophisticated human pipelines, which were once abandoned, are being used again for smuggling drugs and illegal aliens into the United States. They are reviving underground activity in the advent of President-elect Donald Trump’s wall.
Tunnels to gain illegal access are not new.
Israel has faced serious border breeches from “terror tunnels” under the Gaza strip. In response, they have dug in to address the problem. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “The State of Israel has achieved a world breakthrough in its efforts to locate tunnels. That doesn’t exist anywhere else. We checked the entire world.” Israeli computers now detect the use of underground construction equipment.
It’s a good thing the United States has already invested $120 million in the tunnel detection project with Israel. We are going to need some expert help in finding the ones here.
Even though more than a dozen smuggling tunnels have already been discovered in California, that doesn’t include Arizona, New Mexico or Texas, which has the longest shared border with Mexico.
President Trump is right. We have to stop illegal immigrants from entering our country.
