Haiti - Social : 114 boat people repatriated yesterday in Cap-Haitien
The crewmembers from the Coast Guard Cutter Vigilant (USCGC VIGILANT WMEC-617) have repatriated yesterday Tuesday, in Cap-Haitien, 114 Haitian boat-people. The group of haitians has been intercepted on Monday aboard a sailing boat of 60-foot at the northwest of Great Inagua, Bahamas. The Haitian boat, heavily overloaded has been located by a Coast Guard aircraft, then the boat crew have distributed lifejackets to the 114 Haitian migrants, and embarked them aboard the USCGC VIGILANT.

"There is nothing more satisfying to a crew than knowing you helped save 114 lives from the dangers of the sea while at the same time protecting our borders from illegal immigration," said Petty Officer 2nd Class Ryan Smith, a Vigilant crewmember.

Once aboard, the migrants have received food, water, basic medical care and each Haitian has received a sum of 900 gourds to facilitate their return to their communities.
