Border Patrol Snags Another Ponto Panga

by The Editors on October 14, 2009

Looks like the U.S. Border Patrol is making some headway against the coyotes running illegal immigrants into Ponto Landing on what seems to be a monthly schedule, according to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune. They caught another panga on October 13, 2009.

U.S. Border Patrol agents patrolling the shoreline saw the panga boat about 3:30 a.m. Agents for U.S. Customs and Border Protection then intercepted the boat about eight miles west of La Jolla and found the two men aboard. . . The men, ages 29 and 49, are Mexicans who were in the country illegally, officials said. . . An investigation determined that the men had earlier dropped off six people at the Carlsbad beach. Two of the six were later apprehended.

Guess we’ll have to see if they catch the next scheduled drop the second week in November. . .
