CAPTION ONLY: COAST GUARD GIVES SUPPLIES TO ALIENS

SHARE CAPTION ONLY: COAST GUARD GIVES SUPPLIES TO ALIENS

A small Coast Guard craft delivers supplies to the To Ching No. 212 on Monday. The To Ching is one of three ships sitting off the coast of Ensenada, Mexico, that hold a total of 658 Chinese refugees. The ships are waiting while U.S. and Mexican officials discuss the fate of the smuggled Chinese. Unable to survive much longer on the rickety and filthy ships, the would-be immigrants may have to enter Mexico, the first stop before being sent back to their homeland. Mexico agreed Wednesday to receive the boats.
