Re: This guy should have known better
It's all pretty vague out there. The Lat38 news is vague too. Those who have the guns make the rules.
I would stop at San Diego, too, but there does not seem to be such a rule in the CBP entry documents. Only folklore. Security at San Diego used to be tight, locked gate, police presence, but now, after 9/11, nothing. Maybe because they already know....we have already been thoroughly tracked and identified. I've been waved off from SD while trying to dock there. They said "We're too busy." We said, "What about passport stamps?" They said "Nah."
That police response sounds rather heavy handed. And the OC yahoos would seem to way out of their jurisdiction.
