NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) - The Border Patrol says it found another cross-border tunnel from Mexico to the United States after the arrest of four migrants. The agency says agents in Nogales, Arizona, made the discovery on Sunday after a camera operator spotted the migrants. Agents traced the migrants' trip and came across the tunnel from Nogales, Mexico, to Nogales, Arizona. It was just 50 yards from another tunnel discovered last week, although that one was incomplete. The Border Patrol says it worked with Mexican authorities and that it has since destroyed the fifth tunnel discovered this year in the Tucson Sector, which covers large areas of Arizona.
