Haiti - Bahamas : 127 Haitian immigrants intercepted off the island of Andros
In a statement, the Bahamas Immigration Ministry said an air patrol on Friday (March 3) reported an overloaded boat with migrants off the island of Andros, near Cuban waters, to avoid the interception in the waters of the Bahamas, which was heading towards the United States,

However, on Sunday morning, March 5, another surveillance plane reported the ship with people in distress seeking help heading for the coast of Andros.

A crew of the "Royal Bahamas Defense Force" and agents of the "Department of Immigration" went on site and arrested 127 Haitian immigrants (116 men, 9 women and 2 minors) in an irregular migratory situation, following their illegal landing on the west coast of Andros.

All Haitians (safe and sound) were taken by the "Royal Bahamas Defense Force" to New Providence.

The Department of Immigration is working with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to ensure that these illegal migrants are repatriated as quickly as possible to Haiti.
