Three massive cartel tunnels were discovered by U.S. authorities this week—connecting the U.S. and Mexico. The tunnels were presumably used for the trafficking narcotics and human beings. The business of narcotics, human smuggling, and human trafficking are under tight control of Mexican cartels in Northern Mexico.
The U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement agency (ICE) has released details on a tunnel found near Nogales, Arizona that was 449 feet long and aimed to provide a Mexican cartel smuggling route under the U.S./Mexico border. Sixty feet of the tunnel is reported to be under Mexico, with another 389 feet under U.S. soil. A total of 101 cross-border tunnels have been discovered in Nogales, Arizona alone since 1990.
