They don’t even need a tunnel, they can just carry the drugs across the border.
But this is faster.
One of the longest cross-border drugs-smuggling tunnels between Mexico and the US has been found by authorities in San Diego, American officials say.
They say the 800m (874 yards) tunnel was used to transport an “unprecedented cache” of cocaine and marijuana.
It was the 13th sophisticated secret tunnel found along California’s border with Mexico since 2006.
But a local official described it as “ingenious” and unlike anything seen before.
Three have been found on the same short street in San Diego that runs parallel to a border fence with Mexico.
In the latest incident about 1,016kg (2,242lb) of cocaine and 6,350kg of marijuana suspected of being transported through the tunnel was seized, officials say.
“This is the largest cocaine seizure ever associated with a tunnel,” Southern California District Attorney Laura Duffy said, and is the second “super tunnel” to be discovered in recent weeks,
In March, authorities uncovered a 380m tunnel that ran from a restaurant in Mexico to a house in California.
The latest tunnel ran at a depth of 14m (46ft) from the bottom of an elevator shaft built into a house in Tijuana to a hole in the ground on the American side enclosed within a fenced-in lot set up as a pallet business.
We need to stop these drugs. For our children, we must stop these drugs.
We need Donald Trump.
