24 Haitian migrants disembarked in ‘maritime smuggling incident,’ says Border Patrol chief

Palm Beach Shores, Florida – Twenty-four migrants landed in Palm Beach Springs on Tuesday in what the chief of the U.S. Border Patrol’s Miami division called a “maritime smuggling incident.”

according to a tweet Chief Patrol Special Agent Walter N. Slosar said the landing occurred in the morning.

The migrants arrived on a 33-foot boat, Sloza said.

Authorities detained the migrants, Sloza said.

It’s yet another dangerous journey for Haitian migrants to sail to Florida.

79 Haitian migrants intercepted on a sailboat in Lake Worth earlier this month.
