#TurksandCaicos, December 12, 2017 – Providenciales – TCI law enforcers have managed to capture only one illegal Haitian after a landing last night in North West Providenciales. The peculiar thing about the Monday landing is that there is no vessel yet found, Magnetic Media is told. It is believed that 60 illegals managed to make it to shore in the breach last night. There is no information on the suspected landing on Sunday.
Nearby Bahamas made an interception early Monday in Nassau where 57 illegals were caught. Three were children. On Sunday, in Inagua, a huge haul of cocaine was found on a Haitian boat; five Haitians, including the captain were arrested.
The Royal Bahamas Defence Force was due to brief media today on the influx from Haiti; revealing that so far in 2017 1,100 illegal migrants have been apprehended with the help of Royal Bahamas Police, Bahamas Immigration and the US Coast Guard.
