An unfinished cross-border smuggling tunnel has been discovered at the US-Mexico border at San Luis, Arizona, and authorities are describing the structure as the longest ever to be discovered at the southern border.

Graphics of the passageway reveal its length. The tunnel extends 1,300 feet from San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico, to San Luis, Arizona. Its terminus is located just yards away from a residential neighborhood on the American side of the border, although it’s likely the unfinished tunnel was meant to conclude within a residence controlled by smugglers within the United States.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement reportedly discovered the tunnel on Tuesday, after CBP noticed sinkholes in the vicinity of the walled-off US-Mexico border. Authorities located further wood construction material and water hoses by digging into the ground near the sinkholes, later concluding that a void was present. The insertion of an underground camera system confirmed that a tunnel had been built in the direction of Mexico.

After locating the tunnel’s terminus, federal law enforcement were surprised to find that the sophisticated tunnel structure contained its own ventilation system, water lines, electrical railings, and reinforcement commonly seen in industrial-style tunnel constructions. This is in all likelihood the most sophisticated tunnel ever built for smuggling purposes between the United States and Mexico.

This appears to be the most sophisticated tunnel in U.S. history, and certainly the most sophisticated I’ve seen in my career,” said Carl E Landrum, the acting chief patrol agent of CBP’s Yuma Sector. “We will continue to work closely with our partners – Homeland Security Investigations and state and local agencies to provide the best national security possible.

Border Patrol have located cross-border smuggling tunnels in the vicinity of the San Luis area before, and it appears the transnational community is a hotspot for criminal smuggling activity.

After a lull in transnational smuggling activity on account of the coronavirus epidemic, criminal groups appear to have suddenly ramped up their activity, coordinating infiltration of the United States with open borders groups operating in America.

Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato

America must bolster its border security.

The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.

Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior. 

According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang. 

“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.

Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.

With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue. 

As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
