Thousands of immigrants from India have crossed into the United States illegally at the southern tip of Texas in the last year, part of a mysterious and rapidly growing human-smuggling pipeline that is backing up court dockets, filling detention centers and triggering investigations. The immigrants, mostly young men from poor villages, say they are fleeing religious and political persecution. More than 1,600 Indians have been caught since the influx began here early last year, while an undetermined number, perhaps thousands, are believed to have sneaked through undetected, according to U.S. border authorities.

"It's readily apparent to me that the Pride of Baltimore--even with only a paid crew on board--should never have sailed offshore with that rig," said William Peterson, a naval architect whose study of the Pride's stability characteristics agreed with the Coast Guard's 1984 report. Four people died when the Pride capsized and sank May 14 in a freak squall north of Puerto Rico.

A lone sailor wrapping up an around-the-world voyage in a 40-foot sailboat had to be rescued when his mast broke in rough seas 800 miles off the California coast -- just two weeks shy of the end of his nine-year odyssey. A Navy helicopter brought William Peterson, 56, to San Diego on Monday. Peterson, who wasn't injured, flew home to San Francisco. Shortly before midnight Friday, Peterson activated his emergency beacon when his mast broke, said Coast Guard Petty Officer Robert K. Lanier.
