7 Illegal Aliens Are Freed From Border Tunnel

From those lovers of the rule of law at the DNC's Associated Press:

Reps. Brian Bilbray, center, and Darrell Issa, right, both R-Calif., get a look at a 3/4-mile tunnel that crosses the U.S. border into Mexico, Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2006, near San Diego.

7 people freed from SoCal border tunnel

SAN DIEGO – Seven people were trapped in a border tunnel Tuesday, apparently as they tried to cross from Mexico into the United States, according to fire department officials who were trying to rescue them.

Firefighters were sent to the city's border with Tijuana when Border Patrol agents notified them shortly after 7 a.m. that several people were trapped in a cross-border tunnel, said Candice Cook, a fire dispatcher with the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

All were freed within about 90 minutes and none required immediate medical care, fire dispatchers said.

Cook didn't know precisely where the people got trapped but said firefighters from Tijuana and San Diego worked at both ends of the tunnel. She had no other details.

Thank goodness everything turned out okay.

[A]pparently as they tried to cross from Mexico into the United States…

Let’s not jump to any hasty conclusions, shall we?

And by "freed" one assumes the AP mean no one was arrested.  We certainly cannot have that.

But I wonder who paid for these emergency services?
