The passage was discovered yesterday by Border Patrol agents in a few apartments for rent near the border, told Efe Yellow Crystal, spokeswoman for the federal agency in the Tucson sector.

The tunnel was approximately 319 feet long and 219 feet extended into the United States and 100 more to Mexico.

This excavation was discovered more sophisticated than six days in the same area, which had electricity, ventilation, reinforcement of walls and a hydraulic system.
