The U.S. Coast Guard has just captured a 50ft boat that contained over 400 Haitian illegal immigrants onboard.
The boat was detained off the coast of the Bahamas and per Bahamian officials, it’s one of the biggest human smuggling busts in the Bahamas ever.
US Coast Guard officials stated the boat was “grossly overloaded and very much unsafe”.
Bahamian officials will now send the Haitian migrants back to Haiti.
Just look at how packed that boat was:
