Human smugglers switching from land to sea
SAN DIEGO (INT) By land and by sea, smugglers are stepping up their campaign to bring undocumented immigrants into Southern California.

Twenty-seven people were taken into custody in two separate maritime smuggling events who entered the U.S. near San Diego by pleasure craft and panga boat Saturday.

During a 24-hour period earlier last week week, twenty-six people were arrested when the Border Patrol intercepted boats off the San Diego County coast. One panga-style vessel had 15 men, three women and a 15-year-old boy. All were Mexican nationals.

Later, a pleasure craft with seven Mexican and Chinese nationals was stopped and seven people arrested.

Over the last 10-years, maritime interceptions off the Southern California coast have accounted for over 5,000 arrests and the seizure of more than 554,000 pounds of drugs.
