Border tunnel legislation introduced in the Senate

Filed under: Border Security,Congress and HLS — by Christian Beckner on February 23, 2006

Watch out Dig Dug.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein has introduced a bill that would set criminal penalties for people who build, use, or finance border tunnels – something that is apparently not against the law today. The LA Times story on the legislation is here.

This seems like a sensible idea, the kind of thing that is likely to attract near-unanimous support in Congress. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it attached to the border bill when the Senate takes up the issue next month.

Update (3/8): Here’s a link to the bill.
