    Drug route runs 130 feet under Rio Grande

    Narco tunnel found in El Paso: Drug route runs 130 feet under Rio Grande - El Paso Times

    "This is the first of its kind. This is the first time a Border Patrol agent has found one," said El Paso Border Patrol spokesman Doug Mosier.

    Not the least bit surprising. I once heard of a rumored tunnel from the Mexican border that stretched to Sacramento.

    What's all the hoopla over building a fence or wall at the Southern Border? You can go around it, over it, dig tunnels...or go through Canada.

    A fence will not stop illegals, nor will a wall.

    That's pretty impressive. Tunneling under a river is one thing, but doing it undetected?
    Of course, it's a lot faster to close than it is to build! Toss in some C4. Better yet, puncture the top so the whole thing floods. Anyone who manages to come through deserves citizenship and a spot on the olympic swim team.

    Easy fix to this problem. Contract with BP to drill the Rio Grande.

    How many people can squeeze through a tunnel verses a wide open border?

    You don't leave your water faucet running at full blast just because there is a leak. If people have to squeeze through a tunnel instead of going though a wide open border then not that many are getting though.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    But that might flood Texas and it would take several months to fix and years to clean up.

    I would love to see Texas Flood again, but alas, one of the Vaughn brothers would have to rise from the dead.

    Well, if that's the case, why do BOTH parties think it is a waste of time and money?

    One would have thought with all the experience that Americans had with Tunnels in Vietnam during that war, that they would by now have been able to detect Tunnels anywhere.

    Apparently not, as in this incident was an accidental discovery by a Border patrol.
