113 Haitians repatriated
A group of 113 Haitian migrants was deported yesterday, the Department of Immigration said.
A joint team of law enforcement officers departed the Inagua International Airport at 10:10 a.m. for Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on board a Bahamasair flight.
The initial group included 54 men, 17 women, and four minors.
They were later joined by 26 men, 11 women and one minor, who boarded in Matthew Town, Inagua.
The latter group was apprehended on December 7 by the combined efforts of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, the Royal Bahamas Police Force, Operation Bahamas Turks and Caicos Islands (OPBAT) and the United States Coast Guard in waters south off Inagua.
