    Default Boat sank in the Pacific today...

    BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) - A small boat overloaded with more than 100 illegal immigrants capsized and sank in rough waters in the Pacific Ocean, and only nine survivors were found, clinging to a wooden box and buoys, officials said Wednesday.

    Ecuadorean Navy Capt. Armando Elizalde told Colombian RCN television most of the 113 people aboard "sank with the boat." The Colombian Navy said the immigrants' boat was meant to hold only 15 people.

    The disaster that hit the boat - whose passengers were believed to be heading for the United States - occurred Friday night more than 100 miles off the coast of southwest Colombia.

    "The boat, with way too many people aboard, was unable to resist a strong wave and it tipped over," Elizalde said, adding that most of those aboard were in the ship's hold when it capsized and could not escape. Thirteen people emerged on the surface but four of them later slipped under the waves, he said.

    An Ecuadorean fishing boat found the survivors - seven men and two women - on Sunday, Elizalde said. They were later transferred to an Ecuadorean Coast Guard cutter and on Wednesday returned to Ecuador, their faces scorched and peeling from sunburn.

    The Colombian Navy said one of its planes and a boat were being deployed in a search-and-rescue operation. Ecuador's Coast Guard was also participating.

    The disaster highlighted the perilous journey that migrants seeking to escape poverty in their homeland undertake to reach the United States.

    Traffickers often use Ecuador's coast as a launching point, frequently taking illegal immigrants to Guatemala or Mexico so they can travel overland into the United States.

    Last May, a Costa Rican fisherman rescued 88 would-be migrants from Ecuador and Peru from their foundering vessel after he found a message in a bottle they had tied to a float marking one of his long fishing lines.

    The migrants said that they had paid traffickers as much as $3,000 each as a down payment for the trip, with a promise to pay another $7,000 more upon completing the journey. But the boat's crew abandoned them at sea after the engine failed.

    In August 2004, a U.S. Coast Guard ship intercepted a disabled Ecuadorean boat carrying 106 illegal immigrants from Ecuador. The Coast Guard boarded the 40-foot fishing boat some 415 miles off Ecuador's Pacific coast. The drifting boat had apparently been abandoned by its crew.

    Rear Adm. Eduardo Navas, general director of Ecuador's merchant marines, said those aboard the boat that sank in the nighttime darkness Friday, plunging the occupants into the icy waters of the Pacific, were presumably heading to the United States.

    The passengers had departed from a beach near Esmeraldas, on Ecuador's northern coast.

    Navas told Ecuadorean TV it was "a crime to have placed" so many Ecuadoreans in such a small boat, measuring no more than 65 feet in length..


    That last paragraph in bold really grabbed my attention.

    Um, fuckhead, the "crime" was not how many people were put on the boat, but the fact that they were COMING TO THE US ILLEGALLY YOU DICKHEAD!!!

    Illegal immigration is way out of control in the US. One day, maybe we'll have a leader with some balls that will directly address and attack the issue by sending the military to patrol our borders with orders to shoot on site. How in the fuck else are these people going to be prompted to change things in their own lands? Our forefathers certainly did it and so can they....

    Shoot on "site?" What doctrine exactly is this? And when did our "forefathers" do such a thing?

    It's amazing how desperate people are to come to the US. These people risk life and limb.

    It's sickening to see home-grown, USA born citizens not appreciate what this country affords.

    Re-read again because you obviously missed it. Our forefathers fought to change the leadership and gain control of their destiny to become and independant nation and create a democracy through sweat and blood. Mexicans can do the same thing. Shoot on site means the same as a theif on your property because they are coming to steal from you through taxes and numerous other ridiculous programs incentifying illegal immigration...thanks in large part to asswipe liberals like Bill Clinton and Algore . And do not give me the horse shit about how illegal immigrants come here to work harder than American citzens blah blah blah because it doesn't fly, I have dug ditches in Rancho Cucamonga in the summer and that is about as manual labor as it gets. BTW, I am a republican, you intellectual..

    No shit. I've got news for you pal, every single countrymen in the world except the Iraqis's are immigrants. The point is, our forefathers established America and built it to the great nation that it is today and it is being fleeced by illegal immigration at an astounding rate as well as foreign nationals who have no intention of sacrificing their cultures for the American way and it needs to stop, pronto. Close the gates, lots full, sorry folks the show is over. I am not one iota sorry that I am staunchly anti illegal immigrant, and I am leaning heavily towards limiting citizenship for foreigners.
