A smuggling tunnel is found on the border of the USA and Mexico
US border patrol officers found a tunnel near the Mexican border near San Diego, which, according to customs and border guards, was used to smuggle people into the country.
This discovery was made after border patrol agents arrested a nearby 30 man who illegally entered the States, reports ABC News.
“At about 1:12 am, border patrol officers ran into several people who illegally entered the United States. The agents searched the area and found a large hole in the ground with a ladder inside. They concluded that this is a tunnel for the smuggling of people. The exit from the tunnel is located near the checkpoint in Otai Mesa, ”the border service said.
