Federal agents found a 60-foot long tunnel in the process along the Texas/Mexico border.
The tunnel was to be used to transport drugs and people into the United States. The tunnel is well shored up with 4X4s and paneling on the sides. The tunnel was found along a stretch that President Trump wants protected by a wall to stop the influx of drugs and human trafficking.
The Democrats are fighting to keep that part of the border open because they don’t mind the drugs or human trafficking as long as Trump wants to do away with them.
Border Patrol agents discovered a 60-foot-long tunnel still in progress this week at the U.S.-Mexico border in South Texas.
It’s located in Hidalgo, along roughly the same stretch of the border that President Donald Trump personally visited earlier in January.
It would run under where Trump has proposed a wall go.
Border Patrol contacted Othal Brand, the president of the Hidalgo County Water Improvement District 3, for help. The tunnel is located about 1,500 feet downriver from his pump station, on U.S. Fish and Wildlife property.
“You’ve seen them on the news in Arizona and New Mexico and stuff like that, but I’ve never seen one in the (Rio Grande) Valley,” said Brand. “That’s the first one I’ve seen in our backyard.”
He said he’s used his equipment to help federal authorities before.
This discovery was made just as the White House is sparring with the Democrats over whether Americans or illegals deserve preferential treatment. President Trump is on the side of Americans.
