Surge of migrants being smuggled to Puerto Rico


CBS News sent Miles Doran over to Puerto Rico to cover the wave of Haitian immigrants trying to get access to the United States through Puerto Rico, specifically through Mona island. From the article:

Illegal immigration and human smuggling aren’t just a problem on the U.S. border with Mexico. It’s also happening in the Caribbean, where Haitian migrants are trying to reach the United States mainland through Puerto Rico, CBS News’ Miles Doran reports.

In the past two years, human smuggling cases there have tripled.

Agent Creighton Skeen of Customs and Border Protection flew with CBS News over the waters west of Puerto Rico, scanning the invisible border down below.

So when Congress finally decides to address the issue of immigration, know that the policies will not only be felt in the southern states; there’s an almost invisible territory affected too.
