As you have decided to be so childish as to attack Mikesilv's typing/spelling errors, and your user name indicates an interest in grammar, do you mind if I join in the game?

Ohright. This should be two words, separated by a comma.

Since NEVER. Do you truly consider this to be a complete sentence? If you want to contend that parts of it are implied, then at least place "never" in quotation marks.

Ergo, the United States Coast Guard being the primary agency charged with maritime immigration interdiction duties. "Ergo", being a word from a foreign language, should be placed in italics.

"Being" is incorrect; you should have used "is". (By using "being" you have not created a complete sentence and need to continue it.)

Correct: The United States Coast Guard is the primary agency charged with maritime immigration interdicion duties.

Correct: The United States Coast Guard, being the primary agency charged with maritime immigration interdiction duties, does this job on a routine basis.

Incorrect: Exactly what you wrote.

Now, perhaps we can drop this game and go back to discussing what Mike wrote and not his typos/errors in doing so.
