Border Patrol agents discovered an illegal tunnel under construction leading to Mexico on the American side of the border, near the Rio Grande River in Hidalgo, Texas.
A few weeks ago President Trump visited McAllen, a town located 10 miles away from where the tunnel was found. Boarding agents told they showed President pictures of the discovered tunnel.
The border agents contacted Othal Brand, the president of the Hidalgo County Water Improvement District 3, for assistance. The tunnel is located approximately 1,500 feet down the Rio Grande River from Brand’s pump station.
According to reports, the tunnel will be blown up within a month.
