So because there was injustice in the past, we have to allow injustice in the present? The whole world would be mired in lawlessness if you applied that standard across the board.

You missed his point. People have been immigrating to the United States, both legally and illegally, via waterways ever since there has been a United States. That does not make illegal immigration by *any* means just or acceptable. It's makes it not NEWS.

While this is true, (think of the term "wetbacks") due to the crackdown on border jumpers, the smugglers have turned more and more to the ocean as a smuggling route.

Catching them is more difficult as the boats are small and sit low in the water, making them difficult or impossible to see on radar.

Hmmm ... I'm going to go with the AP over you. And if you read the article you'll see there are changes in the patterns.

Why it is news? Them ILLEGALS are invading the US in every which way imagineable and in all kind of methods. Just stick your head in the sand and say "so what/why it is news" won't cut it.

AP says it is news and I pick them established news entity over you anytime.

There may be an upward fluctuation in the numbers attempting it by sea just recently. Yet sea transport is riskier and more expensive, which raises the question of WHY they are trying this method in increasing numbers. Since people will always take the path of least resistance, this development only makes sense if the fencing and added personnel over the past several years are starting to have some effect in making land crossing more dangerous and/or expensive. When the only routes left are more dangerous and/or expensive than before, it's logical that total migration should decrease, as not every prospective immigrant can afford the higher cost or is willing to take higher risks. We can never totally shut down the sea and air options. The only realistic scenario that is a success is if the land option has been interdicted to such an extent as to make it non-viable for 99% of them. That will work fine, as sea and air will never be anything more than a trickle because there are only so many boats and plains available for the purpose and that makes it expensive. In sum, a temporary influx of sea migration isn't necessarily bad news.

Maybe we can just cut to the chase if you just admit you think there should be absolutely no restrictions on migration to the US.

I read it yesterday and thought it was "news" because it was referring to the Pacific entry which at least I don't normally think of when I think of water entry.

Yesterday I got into a vehicle parked outside the Alliance keep and pushed a button. It catapulted me up and over the wall. I nearly had a heart attack because I expected to die on impact, but I didn't and soon after I killed the Alliance commander for a Horde Win.

Maybe if they packed Mexicans in rubber they could shoot them over the border.

Really? Show me where I have ever said that, go on I'm waiting.

So what again is your problem with the story? Why do you point out that people used to come over by boat? (Hasn't been really popular since WW2.) Or is it just that you want to be argumentative and mock people that think illegal immigration is a bad thing?

Feel free to explain your position on illegal immigration.

so I guess you missed the elian gonzalez escapade a few years ago? pure and simple this isn't news.

Elian Gonzalez was yet another illegal immigrant returned to his homeland...and returned to his father at the father's request.
