Fresh Off Of Smuggling Boat Undocumented Immigrants Arrested At Torrey Pines State Beach

[youtube:http://youtu.be/BXo7Qt3G5e4%5D

This is video from a San Diego freelance videographer.

He was Johnny-on-the-spot getting video of the 18 undocumented immigrants just before they were carted away by federal authorities.

The 18 men and woman caught at Torrey Pines State Beach were brought across the border by a panga boat.

According to Wikipedia Panga Boats were created by Yamaha as part of a World Bank project in the 1970’s as a low cost skiff for poor island fishermen all over the far east.

They are cheep to make and easy to pilot at sea.

They are also very popular with smugglers around the world.

AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for April 29, 2013

[youtube:http://youtu.be/rbVS2PKrCWE%5D

This morning the USS Mobile Bay is returning home to San Diego. The guided-missile cruiser and its 5000 sailors spent their 8-month deployment in the Middle East and Western Pacific attached to the Johns C Stennis Strike Group. Making a brief stop in San Diego with the Mobile Bay is the aircraft carrier John C. Stennis. They are on their way to their home port of Bremerton Washington.

At 11:00 AM today labor leaders, immigrant rights activists, and politicians are talking to the media about their plans for May Day. May Day is the internationally celebrated Labor Day and traditionally a day of pro-labor protests. In San Diego the immigrants’ rights movement has attached itself to this day because of our proximity to the border.

And this afternoon at 1:00 the County of San Diego is going to talk about a joining new program called “Text4Baby”. The statewide wide program sends text messages to pregnant woman and new mothers promoting healthy lifestyles.
