Santo Domingo.- The Navy Chief of Staff on Thursday affirmed that during his tenure not one boat has made it to Puerto Rico with boatpeople and more than 300 people have been arrested trying to make the crossing.

Vice admiral Edwin Dominici said around 30 boats have been intercepted at sea attempting to travel to the neighboring island, and others were seized on land, with some 15 trip organizers and captains having been brought to justice.

The official, designated in the post in August, said there’s constant vigilance at all coasts.

LOL...should that not read...they have not caught any successful boatpeople in Puerto Rico?

That statement is right up there with previous statements about no drugs entering the country....never ceases to amaze me what officials claim in this country.

Will he step down if proven wrong???

Secondly...is this due to the fine job being done by our Navy...or that of the US Coast Guard???

I'm sure it's mostly cause of the US Coast Guard, they have adequate boats, helicopters and equipment.

I think that the Dominican consulates abroad needs to carefully screen and cross check/reference with the INTERPOL/FBI before they grant any visas or permanent residency to some of these EXPATS. DR has become a safe haven for international thugs, outlaws and mainly child predactors-pedophiliacs. These perverts often time prey on under privilege, sometimes homeless children, while the local authorities turn their head to the “other side”. This forum is a living example of it………

The Navy Chief of Staff on Thursday affirmed that during his tenure not one boat has made it to Puerto Rico (quote).

However, the drugs shipments make it to Cabo Rojo every single week.....once again a smoke screen. This is simply a publicity stunt, entirely inaccurate.

Cuba military searches for survivors after 38 Haitian migrants die on boat
The Cuban military searched for survivors on Sunday after at least 38 Haitian migrants died as a boat in which they fled their country started taking in water and got stranded at sea.
The gruesome discovery was made on Saturday when the Cuban Coast Guard found the half-sunken boat about 100 meters (110 yards) off Point Maisi on the eastern shore of the communist-ruled island, the Cuban government said.
A statement from the Cuban Civil Defence agency read on state television said the dead included 21 men and 17 women.
Another 87 people, including four children and seven women, were rescued and moved to an international migrants' camp at Point Maisi, where they have been given assistance, the statement said.
The Civil Defence agency did not elaborate on the cause of the shipwreck. But rusty, dilapidated and overcrowded boats carrying migrants from Haiti are often found in distress in the Caribbean Sea.

A similar tragedy occurred in July 2009 off the coast of Turks and Caicos Islands when a boat carrying dozens of Haitian migrants capsized and sank, forcing its passengers to jump overboard.
The US Coast Guard managed to rescue 118 of the migrants, but at least 15 were found dead and about 70 others remained missing.
Cuban officials said the Coast Guard and Red Cross continued searching for more survivors around Point Maisi.

Under Cuban immigration procedures,migrants from Haiti who had reached the island's coast are usually given food and medical treatment before being repatriated back to Haiti.

Thousands of Haitian boat people had been also arriving in the United States since the early 1970s and settling in Miami, Florida.

But in 1981, Washington and Port-au-Prince reached an agreement under which boats with Haitian migrants are interdicted at sea and their passengers returned to Haiti.
