Pangas are beaching along the South Bay coast in greater number.
Illegal immigrants bring felonious records and marijuana supplies to Southern California shores, attempting to outflank the Coast Guard and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Still the US Congress refuses to pass any meaningful legislation to stem the tide of illegal immigration.
