The Border Patrol is beefing up its presence in eastern San Diego County to discourage a new influx of illegal immigrants diverted there by Operation Gatekeeper, INS Commissioner Doris Meissner announced Thursday. Since President Clinton implemented Operation Gatekeeper two years ago, policymakers have doubled Border Patrol staffing in San Diego County to nearly 2,000 agents and bolstered a corrugated steel fence along the more urban 14 miles of the border.

This city has sent a bill for $281,695.25 to the U.S. General Accounting Office in Washington for expenses it has incurred solving migrant laborer problems that local officials blame on the federal government. A letter to Charles A. Bowsher in the GAO's Office of the Comptroller General from Encinitas Mayor Pamela Slater said attempts to deal with thousands of legal and illegal farm laborers who live within the city's boundaries have pushed the city to the breaking point.

Authorities are investigating reports that eight to 10 people came ashore at Crystal Cove State Park in a small boat, then shed their life jackets and some clothes before scattering. Border patrol officials said the group was aboard a panga boat, a type of open-hulled Mexican fishing boat frequently used in coastal smuggling. They arrived at the beach south of Newport Beach on Tuesday at about 7 a.m. A visitor at Moro Beach, one of the beaches at Crystal Cove, called police to report the incident.

A Texas economist has issued a report that backs up Immigration and Naturalization Service claims that illegal immigrants are a multibillion-dollar financial drain on the federal government and take thousands of jobs from American workers. The research monograph, co-authored in part by a retired U.S. Border Patrol deputy chief, also asserts that most undocumented workers want either to become U.S. citizens or to remain permanently in the United States.

There will be no advice on possible amnesty given to illegal aliens apprehended in most of San Diego County, the Immigration and Naturalization Service has ruled. The INS has exempted illegal aliens detained within 25 miles of the border from provisions in federal guidelines that went into effect throughout the rest of the country Friday.

For two years, immigration officials bargained with the trainers at the Del Mar Race Track, asking them to help get rid of as many as 1,500 illegal alien workers. For two years, the trainers talked. And the illegal aliens stayed. Twice, the immigration officials offered not to raid the track if the trainers would cooperate. Twice, the trainers agreed, then backed out. Finally, after repeated threats, the Border Patrol raided last week. By then, most of the workers had fled.
