    would be a great deterrent, since most are coming purely for selfish economic reasons rather than to escape a true humanitarian crisis, motivation level to dodge bullets will not be high. probably won't have to fire more than a few of those rounds per week and less as time goes by, so it won't end up costing much

    Bahamians can say the same about us departing from Florida ports just to take their fish and often beyond their allowed limits. ;)

    HYPOCRISY
    = the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform; pretense.


    "thousands of white colonists, cattleman, adventures, and mercenaries, were coming from other parts of North America that had been already invaded and occupied looking for land and gold they could find and obtain “by any means"

    Mexicans should have built a wall to keep out the white colonists.

    Hypocrisy - Complaining about white people taking "your" land,
    when you took the land from the brown (indian) people living there previously.


    "The stories of Texas didn't begin with the arrival of Spanish explorers in the 1500s.
    Hundreds of different groups of native peoples with a variety of languages, customs, and beliefs lived on the land for at least 11,000 years before the arrival of Europeans.
    For the American Indians, Texas had long been their world.

    The land, the life, and even the other native peoples they encountered were already familiar.
    It was the explorers who were new.

    By the time those explorers got to the new world, American Indians had created long arcs of histories and cultures in Texas.
    From the Gulf Coast to the Panhandle, from the piney eastern woods to the barren southwestern plains, native peoples had established themselves as traders, hunters, food-collectors, artisans, and healers.
    They had crafted ways of life based on what the land required. They had forged and broken alliances, competed for resources, and traded with each other for centuries.
    American Indian tribes such as the Karankawa, Caddo, Apache, Comanche, Wichita, Coahuiltecan, Neches, Tonkawa,
    and many others had already written extensive chapters in the story of Texas by the 16th century.

    periodic auction of seized property ( property that in itself is not illegal ).
    If not should be a market for them.
    They are quite decent boats operated within their design limits & are popular around the world.
    Yamaha put a package together throughout the Pacific with similar boat & a motor for artisanal fishermen often with UN or donated moneys. The Enduro series of Yamahas were specifically designed for these boats & isolated community use ( with a 3 yr guarantee I think it was ).
    In Oz they have been adapted to a CC quite well..... narrow, & fuel efficient, quite suitable for inshore fishing.
    Can't comment on the build quality of the Mex versions.

    My understanding the Panga design was invented by the
    Japanese after WW2.

    Was used in Mexico by the Japanese to fish inshore waters
    using a larger mothership to transport the fish back to their markets.

    Panga's are great little boats.
    Can abuse and overload them and they still get the job done.

    April 11
    The U.S. Coast Guard stopped a crew of fisherman Wednesday morning
    with nearly 2,000 pounds of illegally caught fish.

    Crews stopped a Mexican lancha boat crew illegally fishing off the South Texas coast.
    Three Mexican fishermen allegedly caught nearly 1,000 pounds of red snapper
    and almost 800 pounds of shark.

    The Coast Guard confiscated the snapper and shark.
    The fishermen were handed over to U.S. Border Patrol agents.

    1,000 pounds Red Snapper
    800 pounds Shark.

    I wonder where they take the fish to market? Does the fish find its way to American markets?
