iciHaiti - Turks and Caicos Islands : US Coast Guard intercepts 207 Haitian migrants
On Monday, May 9, a Coast Guard aircraft spotted an excessively overloaded passenger boat south of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The Cutter Campbell of the United States Coast Guard intercepted a dangerous boat with 207 illegal Haitian migrants on board about 20 miles south of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The crew deployed a small boat with life jackets to hand over to the migrants before their safe transfer to the Campbell.

"We urge families in the United States to ask their loved ones not to risk their lives on these dangerous voyages," said Captain Anne O'Connell, commanding officer of the Cutter Campbell adding, "These voyages are extremely dangerous and often involve rustic boats that are overloaded and lack food, water and basic safety equipment."

The 217 Haitians were repatriated to Haiti on Wednesday May 11, 2022.
