THIS WEEK, the Immigration Department repatriated 115 illegal Haitian migrants to Port-au-Prince, Haiti on a Bahamasair charter flight.

Included in the group were 76 men, 32 women and eight children. Eighty-six of those repatriated were among the group which landed illegally in the Yamacraw area on Monday, August 1.

The remaining 29 had been taken to the Carmichael Road Detention Centre after being found without proof of status.

This repatriation exercise represents the first such exercises for this fiscal budget year. The Department of Immigration has $1,000,000 in this item for the period July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012,” said Immigration Director Jack Thompson in a statement.
