U.S. to fill in 7 border tunnels; 2 are in Nogales

Los Angeles Times

Five California tunnels and two tunnels in Nogales, Ariz., will be filled in over the next two months in an attempt to permanently close off pipelines that smugglers managed to reuse after border authorities discovered them.

Workers poured concrete Tuesday into the largest tunnel under the U.S.-Mexico border, which linked San Diego to Tijuana.

The Department of Homeland Security provided $2.7 million after Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., demanded the tunnels be closed, calling them a national security risk.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
