    Drug Smugglers Tunnel into Arizona Parking Spaces

    Nogales, Arizona – Authorities have found that Mexican drug dealers have tunneled into America from Mexico under a city street in Nogales and on that street were parking meters. The drug dealers cut out a square in the pavement which they made like a manhole cover.

    The drug smuggler cars would then park in the parking space and put a quarter in the parking meter and wait. These cars had been specially designed to have a false bottom. The smugglers in the tunnel would load up the cars with marijuana, cocaine, heroin, opium… Then the car would simply drive off to its destination most likely in neighboring states. Who knows they may have been delivering guns, ammo & money to the tunnel and doing an exchange.

    Law enforcement found 16 tunnels leading to 18 parking meters in Nogales. It was kind of like a drive through window for the drugs lords. Homeland Security has removed the parking meters and the city is now losing revenue to the tune of about $9k a year. Just when you think you’ve heard it all.

    “The parking meters on International Street, which hugs the border fence in Nogales, cost 25 cents. Smugglers in Mexico tunneled under the fence and under the metered parking spaces, and then carefully cut neat rectangles out of the pavement. Their confederates on the U.S. side would park false-bottomed vehicles in the spaces above the holes, feed the meters, and then wait while the underground smugglers stuffed their cars full of drugs from below.

    When the exchange was finished, the smugglers would use jacks to put the pavement "plugs" back into place. The car would drive away, and only those observers who were looking closely would notice the seams in the street.”

    Again, this is a drug problem, not an immigration problem. If we did not have insane drug laws, the smuggling across the border would not be so lucrative.

    If we didn't have such porous border maybe the drugs wouldn't be able to get into America to create such a problem. The clear and simple solution to a whole lot of problems is to close the border with Mexico! We need to build a wicked fence and guard it!

    The tunnels could have been used for people too. They could be used to transport small children to Mexico to export to international pedophile rings. There are about 2000 kids a day snatched in America where do they go??? Link

    Everyone should call their politician and bitch about closing the borders and deporting illegal aliens. We should put the troops on the border and guard it closely to stop the flow of the drug traffic and human smuggling.

    Drug tunnel discovered from Mexico to California is four football fields long
    March 24, 2016 -- Federal investigators uncovered a 415-yard tunnel under a newly constructed home in southern California leading to a restaurant in Mexico, marking the first time alleged drug traffickers purchased U.S. property solely to conceal an underground smuggling passageway.
