Border Tunnel Task Force Act

This bill amends the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to direct the Department of Homeland Security to establish border tunnel task forces in jurisdictions in which such task forces can contribute to border security missions after evaluating: (1) whether the areas in which they would be established are significantly impacted by cross-border threats; and (2) the availability of federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement resources to participate in such task forces.

The purpose of the task forces is to enhance and integrate border security efforts for addressing and reducing cross-border tunnel related threats and violence by facilitating collaboration among law enforcement agencies and enhancing information sharing among such agencies.
