The DHS assessment says tunnels along the U.S.-Mexico border will continue to pose a threat to U.S. security.

Despite the frequency with which tunnels have been uncovered over the past years, drug trafficking cartels have not been deterred from constructing new ones.

In addition, DHS says, "The densely populated residential areas and growing commercial development directly along the border in cities such as Calexico, Nogales, Otay Mesa, and Tijuana will provide smugglers increased opportunities to construct tunnels and exploit the short distances between structures straddling the border."
