United States Coast Guard Repatriates 29 Illegal Migrants To The Caribbean


On Monday, the United States Coast Guard cutter Donald Horsley repatriated 29 illegal migrants to the Dominican Republic.

It followed the interdiction of an overloaded vessel in Mona Passage waters off the west coast of Puerto Rico.

Five Dominican men who participated in the illegal voyage were facing federal prosecution at the U.S. District Court in Puerto Rico on various charges.

The Coast Guard transferred them to Ramey Sector U.S. Border Patrol agents in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.

Since October 1, 2022, through August 28, 2023, the Coast Guard has carried out 64 irregular migration voyage interdictions in the Mona Passage and waters near Puerto Rico.

Interdicted were 1,965 non-U.S. citizens.

They included 1,675 Dominicans, 264 Haitians, 15 Venezuelans, seven Kazakhs, one Albanian, two Colombians, and one individual of unknown nationality.

  1. Major issue needs to be placed on the table towards the US. Come on CRICOM open you all eyes, lets open doors to those who wanted to migrate and develop our own food and industries we can join the BRIC what is wrong with that? OR our leaders are hell bent to place our fellow Caricom member state to suffer?
