    Boat carrying 22 illegal immigrants seized off San Diego coast

    This 26-foot boat with 22 suspected illegal immigrants aboard was seized by federal agents in the ocean about a mile west of San Diego's Torrey Pines Golf Course.

    Federal agents today seized a 26-foot boat carrying 22 illegal Mexican immigrants off the San Diego coast.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents stopped the blue-and-white panga fishing boat at 3:30 a.m. about a mile west of city-owned Torrey Pines Golf Course, officials said in a news release.

    Agents fired two warning shots before the boat's operator surrendered, but no one was injured, officials said. Agents found 16 men and six women from Mexico aboard the boat, all wearing life vests and in good condition. Investigators later determined they were in U.S. waters illegally.

    Agents seized the boat, which did not have any registration markings, and held two of the men for possible criminal prosecution. Three of the other men will remain in the U.S. as witnesses, and the others on board were turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol for possible return to Mexico, officials said. ... 0927.story
