Turks and Caicos, September 6th, 2017 – Providenciales – Task Force operations are ceased says the Ministry of Border Control and the detention center has been cleared of all detainees for the duration of the hurricane.

In line with humanitarian treaties, the Ministry yesterday advised that there is no need to fear and is asking any illegal migrant without adequate dwelling or living in low lying and flood prone areas to seek shelter.

 Hurricane Irma is a very dangerous storm and life and safety supersede any immigration initiative at this time.  Get to a shelter or to somewhere safe.
