News Flash from Vancouver
The Coast Guard intercepted a boatload of people off the Texas coast today.
This placed the Coast Guard in an awkward position, as the boat was not heading to the US, but towards Mexico and central America.
Another surprise finding was the people were white American retirement age seniors. Their claim was that they were trying to get to Central America or Southern Mexico, and then they wanted to return to the US as illegal immigrants. Then they would be entitled to far more benefits than they were receiving as legitimate American retirees.
It is believed the Coast Guard gave them food, water and fuel and assisted them on their journey.
I am booking on the next boat out. Let me know if you want to join me.
