Immigrants show up on Hillsboro Beach

Posted on 29 June 2014 by JLusk

Hillsboro Beach residents were quite surprised Sunday morning (June 29) when  the authorities showed up. They were not certain what was happening, only it looked like the SWAT team came in guns-in-hand. It turns out that the commotion came about when 17 immigrants, mostly from Haiti, came to Hillsboro Beach about 5 a.m. The 17 were taken into custody and the man who brought them on their long journey escaped. Luckily, the immigrants appeared to be in good health. Unfortunately for the immigrants, their journey will be round trip and the eight men, seven women and two young boys, aged 2 and 10, will be heading back to their homes.
