In the past quarter century, officials have discovered a hundred and eighty-one illicit passages under the U.S.-Mexico border. Most have been short, narrow "gopher holes" just big enough for a person to crawl through. Sinaloa specializes instead in infrastructural marvels that federal agents call supertunnels.
