Federal Agents made a stunning discovery in southern Texas Thursday evening, finding a ’60 foot tunnel’ at the US-Mexico border used to smuggle people and drugs into the United States.

“Border Patrol agents discovered a 60-foot-long tunnel still in progress this week at the U.S.-Mexico border in South Texas,” writes Fox New Orleans. “It’s located in Hidalgo, along roughly the same stretch of the border that President Donald Trump personally visited earlier in January.”

“You’ve seen them on the news in Arizona and New Mexico and stuff like that, but I’ve never seen one in the (Rio Grande) Valley,” said one local politician. “That’s the first one I’ve seen in our backyard.”

“It’s got 4-by-4 and plywood, on both sides and top; 4-by-4s about two, three feet apart all the way in,” he added. “I mean, it’s pretty stout.”
