A more than 1,300-foot underground passageway stretching from Arizona to Mexico was recently discovered — with the feds calling it “the most sophisticated tunnel in US history.”

The unfinished tunnel — which ran from San Luis, Arizona, to neighboring San Luis Rio Colorado in Mexico — had a ventilation system, water lines, electrical wiring, a rail system and extensive reinforcement, Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Thursday.

“This appears to be the most sophisticated tunnel in U.S. history, and certainly the most sophisticated I’ve seen in my career,” said Carl E. Landrum, acting chief patrol agent with the Border Patrol’s Yuma Sector.

Feds unearthed the tunnel after finding a sinkhole along the US-Mexico border in mid-July.

Border Patrol agents in Yuma drilled near the site of the sinkhole and turned up pieces of wood and water hoses underground — as well as a mysterious void.

“A specialized camera was deployed 25 feet underground to investigate the gap revealing the cross-border tunnel,” ICE said.

Photos show that the tunnel measures 3 feet wide and 4 feet high. There was no access from it to the surface in the US — indicating that it was incomplete at the time it was found.

    I’m sure there’s an explanation, but anybody know why they don’t use ground-penetrating radar? They didn’t find this one until they found a sinkhole.

    Flood the tunnels with river water

    Probably built by the Dems for human trafficking, gun-running and drug-smuggling. Their favourite and lucrative past-times.

      I really don’t think the Dems have any idea how the Mexican mafia runs drugs, guns or people, just get R dun and gives us the profits. Also there are more then the dems as a party involved. You can bet there are wall street people, CEO’s and anyone else who are perverted in their quest for riches. You can bet the inner gov agency members do have all the info and are part and parcel. It is those security people who followed Obama’s instructions to arm the Mexican mafia and at this time for us to beleive that fast & dumb was a mistake, well prove it.
