Border Patrol Agents Seize Smuggling Boat at Sea

Posted: Updated:
Twenty-one people are in custody of the border patrol after a suspected smuggling boat was intercepted at sea.

Agents seized the fishing boat 33 miles northwest of La Jolla Thursday morning.

Many of the people on board were wearing life jackets, but the Coast Guard said the boat was overloaded and put lives at risk.

The passengers were transferred to a Coast Guard ship and turned over to border patrol.
