Environmental red tape stalls border agents trying to fill drug-smuggler tunnels

A tunnel discovered in Naco, Arizona in 2015 included wooden supports and a cement shaft with a hydraulic lift.

Environmental red tape is causing “long delays” for border agents as they try to fill tunnels used to smuggle people and dangerous drugs into the U.S. from Mexico, according to border officials and Republican lawmakers who have discussed the problem with agents.

Frustrated agents complain the lengthy federal review process can stall critical tunnel-plugging efforts for months after passageways are first discovered.
