A military friend and I were stopped a few days ago whilst fishing just south of
Coronado Island by the Mexican police...it was an inconvenience to say the least.
I am a bit curious if that Trump joker had anything to do with the new enforcement?

I am glad that someone ran a story on the harassment.

Were you encroaching on Mexican waters?
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Why were you fishing by the Mexican police?

And why were they fishing instead of arresting bad guys?

Hey Devious,


Maybe they thought you were tryinig to sneak across the border and live in Mexico. Thewy have to be careful. They do not want any illegal aliens or undesirables. You can't be to careful these days. Smile Don't want them reaping all those benefits of Mexico afforded to those "border crossing illegal aliens". Just saying they are only protecting their country. What a novel idea. Wow.
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

They probably were afraid you were "Fishing" out the Heroin that the authorities were going to pick up themselves. When they determined you weren't there to pick up their heroin, they let you go.

We were miles away from the Mexican coast, so there
were no markers to delineate the border which we were
on the threshold of.

We were not anywhere near any other vessels, the Mexicans
came towards us.

So, probably, yes. Smile

Which one is the police?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Was it the Mexican police who stopped you or was it the Mexican Navy and immigration authorities as mentioned in the article? Of course, I guess it also depends on how inclusive the police label is.

I agree the Mexican police (regular cops) have a bad reputation. Not sure about those others.

Meanwhile, here is how it is done in the U.S.

Seriously, though, you have one amongst the longest international borders in the world to guard. And I doubt it will ever be able to be adequately guarded against border jumpers, unless taxpayers pony up a LOT more than they are now. So I am only surprised that there are not more incidents like the one above in the news.

That is not a criticism, just a statement on how I see it. I've no solution for you, sorry.

They were Mexican federal agents.
We both displayed our Military Ids
Which only confused them.
