An advanced drug tunnel has been discovered snaking from a San Diego warehouse to another warehouse across the border in Tijuana.
"In the past we have found tunnels that have railways and lighting and ventilation and all kinds of different scenarios and this is one of the most sophisticated that we have discovered perhaps ever, but definitely at least in the last five years," ICE spokesperson Lauren Mack said.
The drug tunnel discovery is the latest in a string of uncovered subterranean border crossings found since 2008. Just last week two tunnels were found in Nogales, Arizona.
Large quantities of marijuana were found in the newest byway. A news conference at 5 P.M. will tell if it matches or exceeds the 14 ton haul of marijuana confiscated earlier this month in a similar drug tunnel in San Diego.
This is just one part in the real and ongoing struggle with America's southern border issues. The northern migration of people into the U.S. illegally can be debated for eons, but there can be no tolerance for the smuggling of drugs and who knows what other materials into this country.
