Coast Guard Interdicts 102 Haitian Migrants Near Bahamas

The U.S. Coast Guard repatriated 102 Haitian migrants Wednesday in what officials described as the largest U.S. migrant interdiction in more than a year. The migrants were spotted 22 miles south of Great Inagua, Bahamas. They were returned to Cap-Haitien, Haiti by Coast Guard Cutter Mohawk.

“The Caribbean and Florida Straits are dangerous and unforgiving for migrants on illegal and ill-advised voyages in overloaded vessels,” observed Capt. Jason Ryan, who serves as chief of response for the Seventh Coast Guard District.
