Sharing a stormwater drainage system with Nogales, Mexico, means that Nogales, Arizona, is a popular spot for cartels to push their contraband across the U.S. border undetected. The southern Nogales has about six times the population of its U.S. namesake and the city pushes right up against the border fence.

Recently, two tunnels were discovered in Nogales, bringing the Tucson-sector tunnel count to 125 found since 1990. In early December, the first of the two tunnels was discovered when U.S. Border Patrol and Mexican Federal Police collaborated for a routine sweep of the stormwater system.

The article goes on to state the following:

It’s impossible to tell how many pounds of drugs enter the United States through tunnels each year. Most of the drugs that CBP seizes along the border come through ports of entry in vehicles.

(See a video about tunnels below.)

In the following scene from “They Come To America IV,” filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch, founder of DML News App and Team DML, interviews U.S. Border Patrol Agent Chris Harris (now retired) about the power of the cartel network as they flood America with deadly drugs, and asks why no president has ever been able to put a stop to it. WATCH, then click here to learn more!
