A foreign vessel, no matter what flag she flies, owes temporary and local allegiance to the sovereign of any port to which she comes. Moreover, the persons in such a vessel likewise must obey the laws and regulations of the port. Such jurisdiction is discretionary. Once a foreign vessel passes out of territorial waters, she owes no further duty to the place, which she has left, unless there is a hot pursuit. A ship may be arrested to acquire jurisdiction; or to obtain security for satisfaction of the claim when decreed; or in execution of a decree.
