US Coast Guard Cutter Crew Repatriates 72 Migrants to Haiti
The Coast Guard Cutter Charles Sexton’s crew repatriated 72 Haitian migrants to Haiti, April 27, the Coast Guard 7th District said in a release.
“It is extremely dangerous to take to the sea on an overloaded, homemade or makeshift vessel,” said Lt. Mark Tatara, commanding officer of the Cutter Charles Sexton.
“Those who embark on these vessels are risking their lives and it is our duty to protect the safety of life at sea. People should not take to the sea in an attempt to migrate to the United States.”
There were no migrants in these cases reported to have any COVID-19 related symptoms.
