Four Caribbean Nationals Caught Trying To Enter Florida Illegally

Four Caribbean nationals were among six people held by US authorities attempting to enter Florida illegally, according to the Associated Press (AP).

The  news agency reported that  the US Coast Guard intercepted a boat in the Atlantic Ocean with  the six people on board.

In a statement Tuesday, the Coast Guard said  the six included two Jamaican men, a Dominican man and a Bahamian man, along with two US citizens.

The 20-foot (6-metre) boat in which they were travelling  was stopped last week about 30 miles (45 kilometres) east of Sunny Isles Beach, AP said.

It quoted the US Coast Guard statement as saying that  one migrant had previous drug convictions, and another had previous convictions for drug trafficking, kidnapping and aggravated assault.
