Massive Drug Smuggling Tunnel Discovered Going from Mexico to San Diego

Published

on

ABC News reported that authorities discovered what they described as the “the longest illicit cross-border tunnel” from Mexico to San Diego.

The tunnel begins in Tijuana, Mexico and was located in an industrial area a half-mile from the Otay Mesa Port of Entry. According to a press release from last week from the U.S. Border Patrol San Diego sector and its affiliates, a small industrial building concealed the tunnel.

During a news conference last Wednesday, Deputy Chief Patrol Agent Aaron M. Heitke said that the initial discovery was made on the American side due to “intelligence gathering and technologies.” He did not go into the specifics of the technologies that had been used.

“With the help of Mexico, we were able to exact a location of the tunnel itself,” he said.

The tunnel running along the Southwest border “travels north into the U.S. bending slightly west and extending an astonishing 4,068 ft. from the border, with a total length of 4,309 feet,” the news release stated.

The tunnel was 5.5 feet tall and 2 feet wide and “includes an extensive rail and cart system, forced air ventilation, high voltage electrical cables and panels, an elevator at the tunnel entrance and a complex drainage system,” the news release continued.

“They could’ve smuggled any … contraband they wanted to,” Heitke said. “They’ll try anything they can to get their illicit products into the United States.”

Border Patrol claimed that an offshoot of the tunnel had been discovered at roughly 3,529 feet into the U.S.

“This offshoot traveled several feet then came to an end without breaching the surface. The main tunnel extended another city block at which point agents discovered several hundred sandbags blocking the suspected former exit of the tunnel in the Otay Mesa warehouse district within the U.S.,” Border Patrol detailed in its release.

Border Patrol announced that no arrests or seizures had been made after the tunnel was discovered.

“The sophistication and length of this particular tunnel demonstrates the time-consuming efforts transnational criminal organizations will undertake to facilitate cross-border smuggling,” commented Cardell T. Morant, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations San Diego, in the press release.

According to authorities, the second-longest tunnel in the U.S., was located in San Diego in 2014. This tunnel was slightly less than 3,000 feet long.

“As efforts to strengthen security on our Southern border increase, Mexican drug cartels are forced underground to smuggle their deadly drugs into the United States,” said DEA Special Agent in Charge John W. Callery. “The sophistication of this tunnel demonstrates the determination and monetary resources of the cartels.”

A tunnel likes this reveals the sophistication of Mexican drug cartel operations.

Through these tunnels, they will take advantage of smuggling weapons, drugs, and even humans across the American border.

This is why Trump should continue campaigning strong for tighter border security and full funding for the border wall.

Campaign 2020

University of Pennsylvania Workers Overwhelmingly Support the Democrat Party

From Top to Bottom Universities are in the Tank for Democrats

Employees at the University of Pennsylvania are overwhelmingly in the tank for the Democrat Party.

Ophelia Jacobson of Campus Reform reported that University of Pennsylvania employees contributed to Democrat candidates, campaigns, and organizations between 2019 and 2020. Campus Reform was able to gather the data by turning to the Federal Election Commission.

Per the Campus Reform analysis, a whopping 97.6 percent of campaign contributions in 2019 and 2020 made by Penn instructors, staff, and administrators were sent to “Democratic organizations, candidates, and their campaigns.” Some of these groups and causes included ActBlue, Win the Era PAC, Biden for President, and MoveOn Political Action.

The remaining 2.4 percent of contributions went to Republican causes. These included WinRed, Donald J. Trump for President, and the Republican National Committee.

To get more specific, of the 715 donations that Penn faculty members made, just 11 were sent to Republican candidates, institutions or campaigns. This number represented 1.5 percent of campaign contributions pitched in by faculty members. The remaining 98.4 percent of donations were sent to Democrat causes.

Staff contributions showed similar trends. 97.6 percent of contributions were sent to Democrat campaigns, candidates, or organizations, whereas 2.4 percent were sent to Republicans.

Penn administrators donated 731 times during the time-frame of 2019 and 2020. Curiously, 21 of those 731 contributions (2.8 percent) were only made to Republican causes and the remainder (97.1 percent) were sent to Democrat causes.

This analysis reported that ActBlue was the principal organization that Penn workers donated to as far as Democrats institutions were concerned. In contrast, WinRed was the largest recipient of donations of all the Republican organizations.

Just another case of an American institution of higher learning being filled with leftist staff across the board. Let’s face it, universities are a magnet for the Left and work to perpetuate such a political paradigm.

Conservatives should take note. These institutions and the drones who work for them are the enemy. In light of this, the Right should aim to defund public universities and make sure to attend alternative educational institutions if possible. These institutions do not deserve a single penny from right wingers.
