A Border Fence Is Not Enough

Liberals are always declaring that the Mexicans only take the jobs that Americans refuse to do.

Now it's time for Americans to take the jobs that Mexicans refuse to do. Seal the drug smuggling tunnels.
Border tunnels left unfilled on Mexican side pose security risk, officials say

Mexican drug cartels have burrowed dozens of tunnels in the last decade, outfitted them with rail and cart systems to whisk drugs under the U.S. border and, after being discovered by authorities, abandoned them.

But some of the illicit passageways live on.

At least six previously discovered border tunnels have been reactivated by Mexican trafficking groups in recent years, exposing a recurring large-scale smuggling threat, according to U.S. and Mexican law enforcement officials.

The breaches of border defenses, most recently in December, occur because Mexican authorities, unlike those on the American side, do not fill the tunnels with concrete once they have been discovered. Mexican authorities say they lack the funds.
This is a national security disaster. If the cartels can smuggle hundreds of tons of coke and heroin into the US, what else is coming through?

Blow up the Mexican side of the tunnels, collapse them.
Fill the American side of the tunnels with concrete and dead smugglers.
Install a system of sensors along the border to detect tunneling operations.
Install counter battery radar for when they start to catapult that crap over the border.

The process of securing the border will be interesting.

The tunnels are high tech enough that they just start from where the US screwed up the Yankee side of the operation and they route around it. Some of them are 100 feet deep. They are willing to go deeper.
