Video footage sent to our eyewitness news desk this morning indicate that immigration officers successfully nabbed a group of illegal migrants trying to make their way into the country.
A call to Kirklyn Neely, head of the Department of Immigration has confirmed that officers made the discovery sometime between late Tuesday night and the early morning hours Wednesday.
He was unable to provide any additional details.
The video footage, sent to Eyewitness News (EWN) by sources within the immigration department, shows what seems to be no less than two dozen illegal migrants being apprehended at sea. The migrants were on board, what is believed to be, an American sailing boat.
The video clips show immigration officers boarding the vessel, mooring it and directing adult male and females on dry land.
The footage did not show any children to be on board the vessel.
Eyewitness News expects to have an update from Neely in the coming hours as to where the vessel was intercepted, the exact number of migrants on board, their nationality, other pertinent details and will update this story as new details are made available to us.
