Whispers of a secret tunnel running under the border between the U.S. and Mexico have lived for decades in the folklore of the two countries. Earlier this week, Mexican authorities actually found the makings of a tunnel from Tijuana. Mexican soldiers discovered a sophisticated but incomplete tunnel running under the border into the United States and arrested six people in the process of digging, the army said. I point this story out because of who discovered it, apprehended the diggers, and essentially shut it down: the Mexican Military. The story concludes:
Tunnels under the US-Mexico border of varying degrees of sophistication have been found in different areas of the border, including one found in Nogales, Arizona, in June, and large sophisticated tunnels in the Tijuana area in 2008 and 1993.
