Illegal Aliens Storm the Beach in San Diego, Second Attempt Thwarted

By Craig Bannister | August 28, 2014 | 11:23am EDT

Illegal aliens successfully landed on a San Diego beach in a panga boat on Monday and ran to shore - but, when another group tried the same thing on Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border (CBP) agents were waiting for them.

Around 7am Monday morning, a horde of illegal aliens stormed a San Diego beach after coming ashore in a panga boat. They sprinted across the beach and climbed over a wall, entering the city.

Seven of the illegal aliens were spotted by helicopter and later apprehended several blocks from the beach; the CBP is still looking for at least ten more who remain at-large, NBC7 in San Diego reports.

Then, about 1am Tuesday morning, a second panga boat filled with 20 illegal aliens was intercepted about off the coast of San Diego County by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents.

CBP Air Interdiction Agents in an OAM Multi-role Enforcement Aircraft (MEA) King Air 350ER spotted the 30-foot panga around 30 miles from the coastal city of Del Mar.  The MEA crew directed two OAM Interceptor boats to the panga's location.

The OAM boats caught up with and stopped the panga about 12 miles west of the city of Oceanside at around 2:30 a.m.  The United States Coast Guard Cutter Tern was also in the area providing information and assistance.

The panga and passengers were taken to the Oceanside Harbor where they were turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol for processing. There were 13 men and seven women on board.  All were Mexican nationals except two men were from Guatemala and one man was from El Salvador.  The passengers' ages ranged from 20 to 51. Two men from the panga will be prosecuted for human smuggling.

Panga boats are small fishing boats with outboard motors used in Central American waters.
