This documentary, in the form of a satellite map, indicates the approximate, and in some cases the exact, location of the 20+ existing smuggler tunnels dug under the US-Mexico border between California and Arizona. Some of which are complete with electricity, ventilation systems and railroads. The locations are linked to Homeland Security web site articles, media new articles and a US Senate Intelligence Committee publication.

The intent of this map is to show how ineffective building a wall or fence across our southern border has been because the Mexican drug cartels have the money, intelligence and incentive to overcome any barrier we put up.
