    A 250-foot long tunnel with electricity, lighting, water pumps and ventilation was discovered in Nogales by border officials.

    The underground passageway was 3 feet wide by 5 feet tall and originated from an abandoned building in Nogales, Sonora, a Border Patrol news release said. It went 15 feet below ground.

    Border Patrol agents first discovered evidence of a possible tunnel a week ago, triggering a coordinated effort between Mexican and U.S. federal officials.

    The tunnel is one of the most sophisticated of the 40-plus tunnels found since fiscal year 2008 in the Border Patrol's Tucson Sector.
    Most drug tunnels are short, cramped and rudimentary.

    With all the ingenuity these people show for committing crimes and destroying lives, you would think they could fix their own country.

    You'd think they could do something other than deal in drugs.
    Guess not.

    Deal in whatever's valueable. Wanna end this sort of thing, legalize all drugs. Drug cartel power evaporates overnight.

    Only thing achieved making commodoties illegal is those who'll provide them get more powerful.

    There's way more then just dope smuggled across the border. And a lot of it's moving north to south. Whatever Mexicans cant buy new here and take back home, get's smuggled. And the list was very long which made smuggling into Mexico very lucrative. Very lucrative indeed.
