They call to expel U.S. fishermen

Mexican fishermen complained that the crew of the "Sea Adventure II" threatened on Saturday.
Ensenada, B.C. - Pescadores de Ensenada request the intervention of the Navy of Mexico to the invasion of commercial fishing boats American doing business in the bay of Ensenada and Todos Santos Island, where they expel Mexican fishermen, who have tried to ram their boats.
CÃ³rdoba Gerardo Sanchez, representative of the Shipowners' Association Sportfishing, reported that the most serious incident occurred on Saturday when a Mexican fishing boat-the "Ruckus" - was the target of aggression by the crew of a ship American-the "Sea Adventure II" - that through the speakers insulted by requiring fishermen to leave.
"But it is the first case, every weekend off the coast of Ensenada are invaded by vessels of U.S. companies that leave from San Diego to fish in national waters with permission granted by a Mexican office in that city," he said.
He said that ship is engaged in commercial activity in Mexican waters, crossing the border without telling anyone.
Mexico's Navy not reviewed, the inspectors of fisheries, nor do they know which species caught or what products they bring on board, even reaching down to the islands where there are protected areas where they do what they want because nobody says anything, he said Sanchez.
He explained that these boats charge for travel to Mexico hundreds of dollars, paying $ 10 for a permit that do not deliver to fishermen.
No dock or create any benefit to the Mexican tourism, only plunder and abuse species now national fishermen.
Gerardo Sanchez said he was asked several years ago that within the Fisheries Act gives the service that was recognized in sport and commercial, but not included, nor are they protected in any way, lawmakers could now make the necessary reforms but lack willingness of Mexican legislators.
While this is happening in Mexico, U.S. environmental groups have restricted areas for fishing, leading to migration of fishermen in the country, generating unfair competition for Mexican fishermen.
The requirement is simply that the Navy of Mexico remove such vessels from the national costs to be given the same treatment to Mexican fishermen to fish in the Bay of San Diego.

I like that Gerardo is participating in this discussion and providing the other side of the story. Communication is the key to solving this problem and Gerardo makes extremely valid points. Well said dude!
When you go to a foreign country, be it Mexico or Zimbabwe, you have to respect their laws. You're on their turf with their permission under the assumption that you'll respect their ways, customs, and laws. We expect them to do the same when any foreigner comes to the United States, how can we be pissed when they expect the same from us? It's called courtesy and respect and perhaps that captain of the Sea Adventure II better take a refresher course.
And to the idiots trying to mix illegal immigration into this topic, you are way off base. Take your Glenn Beck rhetoric and shove it up your collective asses. You morons will take any excuse to show your asses, even when we are in the wrong, nice job douches.
This is the way it's been for a long time, at least for the past 20 years. This is their house. We all need to calm down. Don't blow this for us. Please. Everyone that doesn't have anything positive to say about Mex please say nothing at silence. PLEASE.

...They go onto say that the LR boats are commercial enterprises charging passengers that shouldn't be allowed to coome into Mexican waters as they create no local $$ benefit to tourism and that they are are never checked by the authorities for what they take week after week.
