Coast Guard repatriates 33 migrants to Haiti from near Fort Pierce inlet

The U.S. Coast Guard on Monday repatriated 33 migrants to Haiti after an interdiction near Fort Pierce Inlet on February, 03, 20024.

“U.S. maritime borders are not open to unauthorized entry or illicit trafficking,” Lt. Cmdr. Sean Newmeyer, Coast Guard District Seven, said in a news release. 

“Coast Guard and our partners are committed to stopping illegal ventures, preventing unsafe voyages at sea and enforcing U.S. immigration laws and regulations.”

A good Samaritan notified Sector Miami watchstanders of a grounded fishing vessel at approximately 10:30 a.m., according to the Coast Guard.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection, including Air Marine Operations and Border Patrol, was the lead agency with assistance from U.S. Coast Guard; St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office, including its helicopter; and Fort Pierce police.
