The United States Coast Guard (USCG) repatriated a total of 305 Haitian migrants to the Bahamas and Haiti on Sunday and Monday, following several interceptions at sea of ​​illegal migration attempts.

As part of Operation Vigilant Sentry, the Coast Guard intercepted a group near Anguilla Cay in the Bahamas and two others near Cap-Haïtien and Île de la Tortue in Haiti, according to the USCG.

On Sunday the USCG transferred 109 Haitians to the Royal Bahamas Defense Force after aircrews informed Coast Guard Sector Key West observers of an attempted illegal migration near Anguilla Cay.

Monday, 196 Haitian migrants were repatriated to Haiti after two interceptions of migrants at sea.

The Coast Guard is urging all potential migrants considering travel "don't go to sea and risk your life just to be sent back. Use the safe, orderly and legal avenues available [...]" said Lt. Nick Fujimoto, Coast Guard District 7 Law Enforcement Officer.
