While in the process of detaining some suspected illegals near the Otay Mesa port of entry on the border between Mexico and the United States near San Diego Border Patrol agents uncovered a major tunnel clearly used to smuggle illegals from Mexico into the U.S. This is the latest in the string of tunnels found on the border in the last several years.
Interestingly, the majority of the illegals picked up in this incident were Chinese instead of Mexicans or individuals from Central America. Many people believe this reinforces the need for the comprehensive approach to border security being pushed by the Trump administration that includes a border wall.
