Border Patrol discovers 'longest' tunnel yet between Mexico and California...and under the wall!
U.S. Border Patrol agents say they discovered a massive tunnel that spans the U.S.-Mexico border on Wednesday.

The 4,309-foot tunnel starts in Tijuana and ends in the Otay Mesa warehouse district in San Diego, authorities said. Border Patrol told the news outlet that it is the longest tunnel it has ever discovered along the southwest border.

The tunnel is complex, as well, according to the agency. It has an average depth of 70 feet below ground and includes an elevator, an extensive rail cart system, forced air ventilation, high-voltage electrical cables and a drainage system, according to the report.

In a statement, Homeland Security Investigations special agent Cardell Morant said, “While subterranean tunnels are not a new occurrence along the California-Mexico border, the sophistication and length of this particular tunnel demonstrates the time-consuming efforts transnational criminal organizations will undertake to facilitate cross-border smuggling."

The tunnel entrance was reportedly found by Mexican authorities in August and then mapped by the San Diego Tunnel Task Force, which is made up of Border Patrol Homeland Security Investigations, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the U.S. Attorney's Office.
