Puerto Rico authorities apprehend 11 undocumented migrants
Published on March 21, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

AGUADILLA, Puerto Rico -- US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and US Coast Guard (USCG) apprehended 11 undocumented migrants on Friday afternoon, after a partially submerged vessel was found approximately 200 yards off the coast of Mona Island.

The group turned themselves in to Park Rangers of the Department of Natural and Environmental Resources stationed in Mona. The USCG Cutter Key Largo transported the migrants to the Port of Mayaguez where US Border Patrol agents assumed custody and transported them to the US Border Patrol Ramey Station for processing under US immigration law.

On Tuesday Frank Kelly Guerrero-Diaz, 26, and Alexander Torres-Reyes, 29, both citizens of the Dominican Republic, were due to make an initial appearance before a US District Court magistrate judge for charges of re-entering the United States after a previous deportation.

Since February 16, law enforcement authorities under the Caribbean Border Interagency Group (CBIG) have apprehended 187 undocumented migrants from Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
