If you followed JDubs posts a little more, you'd see she likes to point out any crimes by Mexicans to show the culture of corruption we are dealing with.

And how is a story of authorities intercepting drug dealers showing how porous the borders are?
Usually of a sexual nature pointing out that they all come from the Illegals of Mexico.

Relax Coastie just a little joking going on its normal for squids and puddle pirates to tease each other. It was an honor to serve with the coast guard when our paths crossed.

pista basci-

Even though the USCG is one five branches that comprise the military, it is unique in that while always operating as a branch of the military, it it also a federal regulatory agency and a maritime enforcement agency with both domestic and international authority. The USCG operates under Title 10 of the US Code. It also simultaneously operates under Titles 6, 14, 19, 33, and 46. Because of this legal authority, the Coast Guard can operate under the DoD or under the President. The USCG is the only US military agency which is exempt from the Posse Comitatus Act (posse comitatus is Latin for power of the country). This act was enacted in 1878 after the Reconstruction period in the South. Its purpose is to restrict the law enforcement activities of the military within the United States territory. The Coast Guard was also charged by international agreement to patrol waters of the North Atlantic with respect to the shipping lanes. And since the Coast Guard's authority extends to port security, any place the Navy has ships the USCG is there to defend the Navy.

I knew the Coast Guard was exempt from Posse Comitatus, but was not aware of all the other information. Thanks for your very helpful posts.
