Ponto Landing Boat Gets Away Again

by The Editors on October 27, 2009

Apparently, the schedule of those panga’s delivering Mexican nationals to the South Carlsbadistan’s Ponto Landing are running a little tighter than we expected. On Monday, October 27, 2009 at approximately 2:40 AM another 20 illegals were arrested at Ponto, according to a story in the North County Times.

About 2:40 a.m., agents spotted a small, open-topped boat landing on South Ponto Beach, according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection news release. Agents arrested 16 men and four women who disembarked, all Mexicans entering the country illegally, officials said.

Not so oddly, the men driving the boat and the boat itself could not be found. Click here for the complete rundown of monthly Ponto Landing arrests.

The fact they keep coming back to Ponto, over and over, tells me they must be very successful at dropping off illegals in S Carlsbad area. Where is our border security?

I guess the border patrol can’t put a request in for a boat of their own or work with the coast guard to get these guys. This has been happening long enough now that maybe someone will put two and two together and realize a patrol IN THE WATER around the Carlsbad coast might do some good.
