    An empty makeshift boat lays in the Mona Passage Oct. 10, 2021, shortly after the Coast Guard Cutter Richard Dixon interdicted an illegal migrant voyage near Mona Island, Puerto Rico. The cutter’s crew safely recovered 10 Haitian migrants including seven men, two adult women and a minor, and apprehended two suspected smugglers. The suspected smugglers are men, Dominican Republic nationals, who are facing federal criminal prosecution in Puerto Rico on migrant smuggling charges. The migrants were safely returned to the Dominican Republic, while the interdiction is the result of ongoing local and federal multi-agency efforts in support of the Caribbean Border Interagency Group CBIG.
