President Obama put his signature on a bill that raises the federal criminal penalties for building, or financing the building, of border tunnels from Mexico into the U.S.

The measure was introduced by Rep. Silvestre Reyes (D-TX) to broad bipartisan support in May and the president signed it into law on June 5.
