    CBP Intercepts Panga Boat with 19 illegal Aliens on board off the coast of Dana Point

    CBP Intercepts Panga Boat with 19 illegal Aliens on board off the coast of Dana Point



    Release Date: August 7, 2020









    The panga boat was seized by AMO San Diego Marine Unit.


    SAN DIEGO – Crews from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Air and Marine Operations (AMO) intercepted a panga boat with 19 illegal aliens on board off the coast of Dana Point, on Friday.

    At about 12:48 a.m. on August 7, a crew aboard a multi-role enforcement aircraft (MEA) spotted a single engine panga-style vessel traveling northbound out of Mexican territorial waters with no navigational lights on and with multiple persons on board. As the boat continued moving northbound into U.S. territorial waters the MEA crew continued updating position, course and speed of the suspected vessel.







    Of the 19 individuals detained, 18 were adult males and one adult female.

    At about 3:30 a.m., the MEA crew directed a San Diego Marine Unit Coastal Interceptor Vessel (CIV) to the location of the panga boat about 11 nautical miles west of Dana Point.

    Without further incident, marine interdiction agents took all 19 individuals, all whom claimed to be Mexican nationals, into custody aboard the CIV. Of the 19 individuals detained, 18 were adult males and one adult female.

    “This interception exemplifies the unique air and sea coordination, vigilance and law enforcement capabilities of our highly skilled interdiction agents in keeping our coastal border safe,” said Timothy Sutherland, AMO San Diego Air and Marine Branch. “The combination of expertise, technology and training were the key for the success of this operation.”

    With the assistance of U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Cutter Halibut the group was transported to Dana Point Harbor, where the 19 people were turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol for processing; agents confirmed the subjects were Mexican nationals with no legal status to enter the U.S.

    The subjects were transported to the nearest Border Patrol Station for the final processing and removal from the U.S.

    The San Diego Air and Marine Branch Marine Unit seized the panga.
