Two Minors Among Illegal Caribbean Migrants Interdicted At Sea


Two Haitian minors were among several illegal Caribbean migrants interdicted at sea by the United States Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard repatriated 26 Dominican nationals and returned 61 of 65 Haitians to a Dominican Republic Navy vessel Friday.

It followed the interdiction of two illegal voyage vessels Wednesday and Thursday in the Mona Passage.

The Coast Guard said the authorities would return the Haitian minors and their mothers who were among Thursday’s group of migrants to the Cabinet for Children and Adolescents (GANA) and the National Council for Children and Adolescents (Conani).

“Irregular migration aboard grossly overloaded makeshift vessels is highly dangerous and puts the lives of men, women and children at risk,” said Captain José E. Díaz, Sector San Juan commander.

“We are committed to saving lives and call anyone thinking of taking part in an illegal voyage to not take to the sea. If caught, you could be returned to your country of origin, placed in removal proceedings or be ineligible for parole,” Díaz warned.
