    Default Puerto Rico intercepts yola with 20 Dominican boatpeople



    San Juan.- Puerto Rico authorities intercepted early Wed. a boat with 20 people from the Dominican Republic on board, trying to reach the island illegally between Aguadilla and Aguada (northwest).

    In a statement, the police said the boat was intercepted at 6am local (10:00 GMT) around 3 nautical miles between the coasts of Aguadilla and Aguada.

    The Añasco Maritime Police patrol assisted the Coast Guard, which intercepted the yola type boat and detain the group, 17 men and 3 women, who were escorted to the Coast Guard boat, prior to deportation.

    I guess that some Dominicans have not gotten the word that PR is still in horrible condition after Maria?

    It's not that they haven't heard that PR is in horrible condition, it's the potential for work in the rebuilding effort and also a possible step to entering the US mainland (which is also difficult due to the DHS inspection prior to leaving the island).

    So the Haitians are migrating (illegally) to RD and the Dominicans are migrating (Illegally) to PR.
    And PR's to mainland USA. And many refugees from USA are migrating north to Canada
    Anyone trying to get into Haiti (illegally)... almost like a food chain.
    Interesting

    actually, they are probably of the belief that there might be a state of anarchy there now, which will allow them to glide in undetected.

    Haiti is usually the first stepping stone for Cubans escaping. Seems to be many Canadians enjoy visiting Cuba, so there goes your complete circle.

    They obviously did not read the thread in the Debates forum. The DR economy is booming. It has been for the past ten years. High paying jobs and competitive in the global economy.

    On a more serious note this is always disturbing to see. People so desperate that they will risk their lives to go elsewhere. However, Puerto Rico has always been limited for those who arrive illegally and even worse now since the hurricane. Puerto Ricans on the island are looking to flee. Many have already. I read an article last week that 50,000 have moved to the Miami area since the devastation. As for mi gente canadiense they are cheap. They go to Cuba for a cheap vacation then half complain about the food, service and limited options.

    We will be going to Cuba for Samana Santa, a group of Dominicans and this Canuck. I am not cheap at all, but my Dominican wife is. Last time we were there she was almost in tears at how poor Cubans are treated by their own government. There will always be people that think the grass is greener on the other side.
