Senator Dianne Feinstein is going to introduce a bill today that would make tunneling under the US border a federal offense. It's a shame that this legislation even needs to be introduced.
Senator Feinstein has a relatively decent record on illegal immigration (overall career grade of B at Congress Grades) and we should all get behind her when she acts in the interests of all Americans.
On Tuesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., plans to introduce a bill that will spell out, specifically, that such burrowing is a federal offense in this era of heightened border security and terrorism concerns.
Her bill, which Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., is co-sponsoring, is to be unveiled at a news conference at the warehouse near the Otay Mesa port of entry in Southern California, where authorities in January uncovered a tunnel from Tijuana.
Laws exist to prosecute people for illegally entering this country, as well as for smuggling drugs, people, weapons or other contraband.
But Feinstein wants to add specific anti-tunneling legislation.
