(LONDON) Chelmsford Crown Court Report: Four men have been sentenced to 35 years in prison for people smuggling and who plotted to bring hundreds of migrants into the UK #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Dec.23: Working with partners like Border Force and Immigration Enforcement, we will relentlessly pursue people smugglers and bring them before the courts to face the consequence of their actions.”

#AceDailyNews says according to an NCA News Report: A London-based crime group which tried to smuggle 69 Albanian migrants into the UK on a decrepit fishing vessel – and planned to bring in 50 more every week – have been jailed.

OpSketchlike

The crime group were involved in the smuggling attempt on 17 November last year when the 30-metre converted trawler ’Svanic’ was intercepted off the Norfolk coast.

The boat – built nearly 60 years ago and with a lifeboat for just 20 people – had set sail from the Ostend area of Belgium and was heading towards Great Yarmouth.

It was escorted into Harwich international port in an operation involving the National Crime Agency, Border Force, HM Coastguard, Immigration Enforcement and Essex Police.

The NCA had been alerted to the vessel by the Maritime Analysis and Operations Centre in Lisbon. MAOC received a report of suspicious activity from the Swedish authorities who had to assist the Svanic after it ran aground 15 days prior to picking up the migrants.

The vessel, which had been purchased in Latvia for around 20,000 euros in October 2020, was to run aground a second time before collecting the migrants in Belgium.

The three crew members – Igor Kosyi, aged 57, and Volodymyr Mykhailov, 49, both from Ukraine, and Alexsandrs Gulpe, 44, from Latvia – were arrested by the NCA on suspicion of facilitating illegal immigration. The 69 migrants were handed to Immigration Enforcement.

NCA investigators seized a laptop from the vessel, which enabled them to identify the UK-based gang which had orchestrated the attempt.

The computer had been given to the crew by Latvian national Sergejs Kuliss, 32, of Albert Basin Way, Newham, London. Phone evidence showed Kuliss was in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, on the night of the smuggling attempt, awaiting the arrival of the boat. 

During the day Kuliss had been in contact with fellow conspirators Lithuanian national Arturas Jusas, 35, living in Lambeth, and Israeli national Kfir Ivgi, 39, from Finchley.

Messages found on their phones showed the three men spent weeks discussing their plans to invest in a boat for the purpose of smuggling people, with Jusas claiming ‘from first trip we’re going to get the money back’.

Once the Svanic had been identified as a possible purchase Kuliss sent a sequence of photographs and videos of the boat to Jusas, which he forwarded to Ivgi. He replied: ‘Yes, yes, yes…I don’t care how it looks like, it’s good’, indicating he didn’t care about the condition of the vessel.

In one audio messages found on his phone following his arrest, Jusas boasted to Ivgi that he planned to ‘bring every week 50 people’. Other messages showed he was in contact with people on the ‘other side’ who wanted to move migrants to the UK.

The trio had also scoped out potential landing sites for the vessel, which had only 21 lifejackets on board, eventually settling on Great Yarmouth.

After the interception the gang shared online news reports about the incident with each other, with Ivgi messaging Jusas to say ‘clean the…phone’.

Jusas, Ivgi and Kuliss were arrested during a series of NCA raids in June this year after investigators were able to piece together their involvement in the plot.

They were charged alongside Kosyi, Mykhailov, and Gulpe with conspiring to facilitate illegal immigration.

Jusas pleaded guilty at Chelmsford Crown Court on 6 August, but following an eight-week week trial at the same court Ivgi, Kuliss, Gulpe and Kosyi were found guilty on 17 November – exactly a year since the boat was intercepted.

Volodymyr Mykhailov was found not guilty.

Jusas, Ivgi, Kuliss and Kosyi were sentenced at the same court today (21 December). Gulpe’s sentencing was adjourned to a later date.

NCA Director of Investigations Nikki Holland said: “These men had no qualms about trying to smuggle vulnerable migrants on board an unseaworthy vessel, with ambitions to bring in hundreds more using this deadly method.

“Their sole motivation was monetary greed so I’m delighted they are now beginning lengthy jail terms for these despicable crimes.

(LONDON) NCA/BORDER FORCE REPORT: 18 people arrested with suspected links to an organised crime group involved in the supply of boats which could each carry between 40 and 60 people from France to the UK. #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.26: National Crime Agency officers have been involved in an international operation which has seen the dismantling of an organised crime group involved in the smuggling of people from France to the UK in small boats.

#AceDailyNews NCA Report: International operation sees network of small boat people smugglers dismantled in France

The operation saw 18 people arrested by OCRIEST, the French border police unit targeting immigration crime with assistance of additional French border policing partners, in the Calais, Le Havre and Paris regions of France. Over 100,000 euros were also seized in cash and bank accounts.

The organised crime group were involved in the supply of boats which would each be able to carry between 40 and 60 people.

The network would then arrange departures from the shore of northern France, recruiting migrants in the various camps there. They would each be charged around six thousand euros for the journey to the UK, which some of those arrested would then seek to launder.

NCA intelligence and international network officers worked with colleagues in OCRIEST and other international partners to target and identify those who were arrested.

Those held in the operation included nationals of Iraq, Pakistan, Romania and Vietnam, and they will all now be subject to French judicial proceedings.

NCA Deputy Director Andrea Wilson said:

” We look to target and disrupt organised crime groups involved in people smuggling at every step of the route.

“Much of this criminality lies outside the UK, so we have built up our intelligence sharing effort with law enforcement partners in France and beyond.

“This includes having NCA officers based in those countries, sharing intelligence and working side by side on joint investigations.

“This approach is bringing operational results in the form of arrests and prosecutions, as we have seen with this particular case.

“Much of this work is necessarily covert, but we know it is having an impact.

“We are continuing to look at ways to disrupt the supply of vessels to people smuggling OCGs, and target those who knowingly do so.

“Earlier this year we issued an alert to the UK maritime industry to raise awareness, and we are working with partners in the EU to do similar there.”

The NCA has a team of liaison officers based in France working on investigative activity with French partners both as part of Project INVIGOR, the UK’s organised immigration crime taskforce, but also on wider threats that require Anglo-French law enforcement co-operation.

This means NCA officers on the ground in France, not just exchanging intelligence but working with the French police to collaborate on both proactive and reactive investigations, including those with a particular focus on small boats threat.

(LONDON) LATEST: At least 27 people have died trying to cross the English Channel in a small boat on Wednesday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.25: A fishing boat sounded the alarm on Wednesday afternoon after spotting several people in the sea, off the northern coast of France…..

#AceDailyNews says according to media news and the illegal migrants who drowned were 17 men, seven women – one of whom was pregnant – and three children, France’s Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said: A joint search and rescue operation by British and French authorities was launched, and eventually called off late on Wednesday.

Two people were rescued and are in a critical condition with severe hypothermia in a French hospital. One of them is from Iraq, the other is Somali, Mr Darmanin told RTL radio.

The task of performing autopsies and identifying the victims will take place over the next few days in Lille, in northern France, the city’s public prosecutor Carole Etienne confirmed.

French media is reporting that the dead are believed to be Iraqi or Iranian Kurds.

What happened to the boat?

The cause of the accident remains unknown, but when the long, inflatable boat the migrants were using was found by rescuers, it was mostly deflated.

Mr Darmanin described the boat as a dinghy that was “extremely fragile”.

He said “it was like a pool you blow up in your garden”.

It is the kind of boat often used by people smuggling networks to get migrants across the channel, and has now been sent to Lille to be examined.

French police say the boat set out from the Dunkirk area, east of Calais.

Fishermen in the area said calm weather had prompted more migrants than usual to attempt to make the crossing on Wednesday.

There are reports that about 25 boats had attempted the crossing during the day.

Five alleged traffickers linked to the incident have been arrested in France.

Two people have already appeared in court and an investigation into aggravated manslaughter has been opened by prosecutors, Mr Darmanin said.

Mr Darmanin said the boat used to cross the Channel, called a zodiac, was purchased in Germany.

Boats still arriving

Despite Wednesday’s tragedy, people have continued to attempt the dangerous 20 mile (32km) journey across the Channel. On Thursday, two more boats arrived in Dover, carrying about 40 people, the BBC’s Simon Jones says.

This is all happening a week after a large migrant camp near Dunkirk in northern France was dismantled and up to 1,500 migrants were evacuated from the site.

More than 25,000 people have made the dangerous journey from France to the UK across the Channel in small boats this year. 

That is more than any other year, and more than three times last year’s total.

Speaking to BBC News, the president and chairman of the ports of Calais and Boulogne, Jean-Marc Puissesseau, said: “Even if the sea is not looking so rough, in the middle [of the English Channel] there are always many waves. It is dangerous.”

Over the past 20 years, organised crime gangs have created an entire industry in smuggling people from Asia and Africa across Europe.

For years, people smugglers have sent people across the Channel hidden in trucks on ferries or trains. But as port security has been tightened, more attempts have been made to send people by boat.

A vigil took place at Calais calling for the protection of migrants after the tragedy in the Channel

The day after at least 27 people died trying to cross the English Channelwhen their flimsy inflatable boat capsized during the perilous voyage, the leaders of France and England vowed to crack down on migrant crossings even as they offered a fractious response to one of the deadliest disasters in recent years involving migrants trying to cross the narrow waterway separating the two countries.

French officials confirmed that children and a pregnant woman were among those who had drowned, as crews worked in the cold and wind to recover bodies and to try to identify those who died. Two people, one from Iraq and one from Somalia, were found and taken to a French hospital, where they were being treated for severe hypothermia. 

The tragedy was a stark reminder that five years after authorities dismantled a sprawling migrant camp in Calais, both countries are still struggling to handle the flow of migrants in the area.

France and Britain have long accused each other of not doing enough to curb attempts to cross the Channel. After the tragedy on Wednesday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson of Britain said greater efforts should be made to allow joint patrols along the French coast.

And President Emmanuel Macron of France said he expected the British “to cooperate fully and to abstain from using this dramatic situation for political means.”

The two leaders spoke by phone late on Wednesday and said in statements afterward that they had agreed to step up efforts to prevent migrants from making the journey across one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes.

Under an agreement between the two nations, Britain pays France to clamp down on crossings through surveillance and patrols.

Mr. Johnson said that he was “shocked and appalled and deeply saddened by the loss of life at sea in the Channel.” But, he added: “I also want to say that this disaster underscores how dangerous it is to cross the Channel in this way.”

Mr. Macron called for an immediate tightening of border controls and an increased crackdown with other European nations on people smugglers.

“France won’t let the Channel become a graveyard,” he said in a statement.

The drownings came only a few days after French and British authorities had reached an agreement to do more to stem the number of people taking to the sea. 

Attempts to reach Britain in small boats have increased in recent years as the authorities have cracked down on the smuggling of asylum seekers inside trucks crossing by ferry or through the Channel Tunnel.

Since the beginning of the year, there have been 47,000 attempts to cross the Channel in small boats and 7,800 migrants had been saved from shipwrecks, according to French officials. Before Wednesday, seven people had died or disappeared so far this year.

Many migrants — who are often from countries in Africa or the Middle East like Iraq and Eritrea — consider Britain an ideal destination because English is spoken, because they already have family or compatriots there, and because it can be relatively easy to find off-the-books work.

But the recent increase in attempts to cross the English Channel by boat reflects a shift in how migrants are traveling, not in how many, according to migration experts and rights groups, who say that, overall, asylum applications in Britain are down this year.

The crossings have become another element in the worsening relations between France and Britain, which have also clashed over fishing rights and trading checks after Britain’s departure from the European Union, as well as over a submarine alliance between Australia, Britain and the United States that undermined a previous French deal.Another group of migrants on the northern coast of France on Wednesday, with a dinghy to attempt the Channel crossing.Gonzalo Fuentes/Reuters

On a clear day, it is possible to see the white cliffs of Dover from France. The English coast can appear tantalizingly close and for years, it has drawn migrants who have already traversed Europe and hope to reach Britain where they believe better opportunities await.

In the dark of night on Tuesday, nearly three dozen people, including men, women and children, set off on what French officials described as an “extremely fragile” inflatable boat into the strong currents and the freezing, choppy waters that divide the two nations.

It is one of the busiest shipping routes in the world and the short distance belies the dangers inherent in the crossing. The perils are made greater by the fact that many of those attempting the journey are assisted by smugglers who pack them onto tiny dinghies, which are overstuffed and unbalanced.

Gérald Darmanin, France’s interior minister, said that the authorities believed about 30 people were crowded onto a frail vessel that he compared to “a pool you blow up in your garden.”

A report in the French news media said that the migrant boat was struck by a container ship, although French authorities said the circumstances of the disaster were still under investigation.

On Thursday, Mr. Darmanin told RTL radio said that many crossings started in the same way.

“Dozens, sometimes hundreds of migrants, take a beach by storm to leave very quickly, often at high tide, to reach England in makeshift vessels,” he said. 

On Wednesday afternoon, a fishing vessel alerted maritime authorities that several people had been spotted in the waters off the coast of Calais. Ships and helicopters soon began a search and rescue operation.

Two people, one from Iraq and one from Somalia, were found and taken to a French hospital, where they were being treated for severe hypothermia. The boat itself was discovered completely deflated, officials said. It was still unclear as of Thursday morning how many people might still be missing.

And the work of identifying those who died was likely to be complicated by the fact that many migrants dispose of any identification papers before making the crossing. Mr. Darmanin said that the dead included women and children. It was still unclear on Thursday where all of the migrants in the group were from.

Mr. Darmanin said that authorities suspected the vessel had been bought in Germany by a smuggler whose car had German license plates. That smuggler, and four others, had been arrested in connection with the shipwreck, Mr. Darmanin said.

Sixty to seventy percent of the migrants attempting to reach Britain arrive from Germany or the Netherlands and go through Belgium into France to attempt a quick crossing, Mr. Darmanin added.

“Smugglers pick them up and, over a couple days, try to bring them to the beach,” he said. “It’s an international problem.”

(TUCSON, Ariz.) Justice Dept Court Report: A local area woman pleaded guilty in connection with her role as the coordinator of a human smuggling operation in Avondale, Ariz., following a probe by ICE/HSI) Nogales & CBP #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.20: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Nogales assisted by U.S. Border Patrol

#AceDailyNews DOJ Court Report: ICE/HSI Nogales/CBP Human smuggling case leads to guilty plea, Amalia Gonzalez-Lara, 43, of Phoenix, admitted that she conspired to transport and harbor over 100 illegal aliens for profit during a proceeding before the U.S. Magistrate Judge.

On Jan. 12, law enforcement agents located 20 undocumented people, all nationals of Mexico or Guatemala, inside a residence located at 1905 North 119th Drive in Avondale, Arizona. Over the course of the conspiracy, the house was used to conceal large numbers of foreign nationals who had been smuggled across the U.S.-Mexico border and transported to the Phoenix area. Special agents with HSI and U.S. Border Patrol made the arrests.

Co-conspirator Sergio Vazquez-Flores, 46, of Goodyear, Arizona, pleaded guilty to conspiring to transport and harbor over 100 illegal aliens for profit on Nov. 5. Vazquez-Flores operated the stash house at the Avondale address on behalf of Gonzalez-Lara.

A conviction for Conspiracy to Transport and Harbor Illegal Aliens for Profit carries a maximum penalty of ten years, a maximum fine of $250,000, or both.

Sentencing for Vazquez-Flores is scheduled for Jan. 25, 2022, and for Gonzalez-Lara on Feb. 1, 2022.

This case resulted from the efforts of the Joint Task Force Alpha (JTFA), which was established by Attorney General Merrick B. Garland in June to marshal the investigative and prosecutorial resources of the Department of Justice, in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), to enhance U.S. enforcement efforts against the most prolific and dangerous human smuggling and trafficking groups operating in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.

The Task Force focuses on disrupting and dismantling smuggling and trafficking networks that abuse, exploit, or endanger migrants, pose national security threats, and are involved in organized crime. JTFA consists of federal prosecutors and attorneys from U.S. Attorney’s Offices along the Southwest Border (District of Arizona, Southern District of California, Southern District of Texas, and Western District of Texas), from the Criminal Division and the Civil Rights Division, along with law enforcement agents and analysts from DHS. The FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration are also part of the Task Force.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of Arizona, Tucson, handled the prosecution.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

(LONDON) Chelmsford Crown Court Report: A London-based crime group who tried to smuggle 69 Albanian migrants into the UK on a dilapidated fishing vessel – and planned to bring in 50 more every week – have been convicted #AceNewsDesk report

#AceDailyNews NCA Court Report: ‘Crime Group Convicted’ for people smuggling of Albanians into UK who plotted to bring hundreds of illegal migrants into the UK

Svanic fishing trawler

The NCA had been alerted to the vessel by the Maritime Analysis and Operations Centre in Lisbon:

MAOC received a report of suspicious activity from the Swedish authorities who had to assist the Svanic after it ran aground 15 days prior to picking up the migrants.

The vessel, which had been purchased in Latvia for around 20,000 euros in October 2020, was to run aground a second time before collecting the migrants in Belgium.

Volodymyr Mykhailov was found not guilty.

Jusas and the four convicted will be sentenced at a later date.

David Fairclough, Deputy Director, Immigration Enforcement Criminal Investigation, said:

” There is no stronger example of how organised criminals are prepared to risk the lives of the people they smuggle for profit.

“The Svanic was in an appalling condition, and in no fit state to make the perilous journey from Belgium to the UK. Had it got into trouble, the consequences could have been fatal as there was only one lifeboat and 21 lifejackets.

“The dangers wouldn’t have crossed the minds of these men, whose sole motive was to line their pockets. They were planning to use this deathtrap over and over again.

“Cases like these strengthen our resolve to come down hard on the organised criminals behind people smuggling, who ply their trade on exploitation and misery.”

NCA Director of Investigations Nikki Holland said:

” These callous criminals had big plans to orchestrate a lucrative criminal operation at the expense of people’s safety using an unseaworthy vessel with only 20 lifejackets onboard.

“It is sickening that criminal gangs like this have no regard for the value of human life only seeing them as a way to make money. As recent tragic events show these journeys are unnecessary, perilous, and sadly sometimes fatal.

“Thanks to the culmination of efforts across the Home Office and NCA, we’ve slammed the breaks on this ruthless crime gang, and they will now receive the justice they deserve.”

(ALPINE, Tx.) ICE/HSI REPORT: NM man arrested for transporting over 60 noncitizens (illegals) including four children, in box truck #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.16: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents arrested a Las Cruces, New Mexico, man Tuesday in Brewster (Texas) County on federal criminal charges related to his alleged involvement in human smuggling.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: According to documents, Javier Duarte, 22, was driving a box truck through the Highway 118 checkpoint where U.S. Border Patrol agents referred him to secondary inspection….

Agents discovered 67 people concealed in the truck. Four of them were minors, ranging from 8 to 13 years old: In addition, three of the adults were found to have prior aggravated felonies to include rape, possession with intent to distribute drugs and crimes involving moral turpitude.

“That unscrupulous smugglers put lives in danger to support their criminal activity is reprehensible,” said Taekuk Cho, acting special agent in charge for HSI El Paso. “Homeland Security Investigations continues to collaborate with our law enforcement partners to prevent Transnational Criminal Organizations from putting greed and profit before human life as well as national security.”

Duarte is charged by criminal complaint with one count of transportation of noncitizens and one count of aiding or assisting noncitizens to enter the United States who were previously convicted of an aggravated felony. If convicted, Duarte faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison on both counts. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Lance Kennedy and Kevin Eaton are prosecuting the case.

A criminal complaint is merely an allegation and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

(LONDON) Home Office Report: Tackling increasing ‘Channel Crossings’ by illegal immigrants and organised gangs with NCA and international partner agencies #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.15: We are seeing an unacceptable rise in illegal migrants departing from France: The British public have had enough of seeing people die in the Channel while ruthless criminal gangs profit from their misery: These crossings are dangerous, with overloaded boats in busy shipping lanes: They are also unnecessary because France is a safe country and people should claim asylum there rather than risk their lives at the hands of criminal smugglers.

#AceDailyNews Home Office News Team Report: This is part of a global issue. There are 80 million displaced people globally but not everyone who wants to come to the UK can do so. That’s why we prioritise those most in need through our safe and legal routes: HO News Team12 November 2021..

Stopping the criminal gangs

The UK government, police, National Crime Agency and international partners are taking action at every level to take down the people smuggling gangs who are behind this surge in crossings.

  • So far in 2021 there are 94 ongoing investigations related to small boat criminality which has led to 46 arrests and 8 people being convicted.
  • Since 2020, Immigration Enforcement have achieved 65 small boat related prosecutions in the UK, totalling over 53 years in custodial sentences.
  • In its first 12 months, the Joint Intelligence Cell was involved in nearly 300 arrests relating to small boats activity in France.

Having a maritime deterrent

It is critical that we have a maritime deterrent in the Channel.

Border Force officers are authorised, trained and stand ready to use safe and legal options to stop these deadly crossings.

All operational procedures used at sea comply with and are delivered in accordance with the law.

Working with the French

It is disappointing how many migrants have managed to cross the Channel.

The French have committed to working with us to prevent 100% of crossings, but it is vital they go further and faster to achieve this and do everything possible to stop people leaving French beaches in the first place.

Our targeted efforts with the French have prevented more than 19,000 migrant attempts so far in 2021.

Our long term plan to fix the broken system

The UK Government’s New Plan for Immigration is the only credible long-term solution to fix the broken system and seeks to make this route unviable.

First published in March 2021, it has three fair but firm objectives:

  • To increase the fairness of our system so we can protect and support those in genuine need of asylum.
  • To deter illegal entry into the UK – breaking the business model of people smugglers – and protecting the lives of those they endanger.
  • To remove more easily from the UK, those with no right to be here.

At its heart is a simple principle: access to the UK’s asylum system should be based on need, not on the ability to pay people smugglers.

Anyone who arrives in the UK illegally – where they could reasonably have claimed asylum in another safe country like France – will be considered “inadmissible” to the asylum system. We will seek to return them to a safe country.

The legislation to support this plan is already making its way through Parliament and will:

  • Be tough on the people smugglers, who could face life behind bars.
  • Deter illegal entry to the UK, with maximum four years imprisonment.
  • Introduce new powers to remove asylum seekers to have their claims processed outside the UK.
  • Establish new accommodation centres to speed up the processing of claims and removal of those with no right to remain in the UK.
  • Speed up the removal of those with no right to be in the UK by streamlining the appeals and judicial process which can be used to frustrate removal.
  • Strengthen Border Force powers to stop and redirect vessels.

These reforms will take time but the Government is determined to bring lasting change to the system so that it is fair but firm.

Coast Guard repatriates 66 Dominican migrants to a Dominican Republic Navy vessel, following the interdiction of 2 illegal voyages in the Mona Passage

The aircrew of a Customs and Border Protection Marine Enforcement Aircraft detected the second illegal voyage Saturday morning. Following the sighting, the Coast Guard Cutter Winslow Griesser crew interdicted a 25-foot grossly overloaded makeshift boat and safely embarked the migrants.

During both interdictions, the CBP aircrews vectored-in the cutter Winslow Griesser to the migrant vessels’ position.

The interdictions are the result of ongoing local and federal multi-agency efforts in support of the Caribbean Border Interagency Group CBIG.

“I’m truly impressed with the professionalism and dedication displayed by the crew of Winslow Griesser, our CBP partners and Sector San Juan personnel who worked these cases,” said Lt. Benjamin Williamsz, Coast Guard Cutter Winslow Griesser’s commanding officer. “These illegal migrant ventures are incredibly dangerous. Often people we find at sea are on overloaded, un-seaworthy vessels suffering from exposure, heat exhaustion, dehydration, and other acute medical issues. For those considering embarking on such a treacherous voyage – I implore you to find a safe and legal alternative.”

“To anyone considering taking part in one of these voyages we urge them to not take to the sea, you are putting your life and the life of others at risk,” said Cmdr. Beau Powers, Coast Guard Sector San Juan chief of response. “If caught, you are also risking prosecution for migrating illegally to the United States.  Migrants who are interdicted at sea and not prosecuted, will be returned to the country they departed from.”

Once aboard a Coast Guard cutter, all migrants receive food, water, shelter and basic medical attention. Throughout the interdiction, Coast Guard crewmembers were equipped with personal protective equipment to minimize potential exposure to any possible case of COVID-19.

Family members in the United States inquiring about possible family members interdicted at sea, please contact your local U.S. representative. Relatives located outside the United States please contact your local U.S. Embassy.

CBIG was formally created to unify efforts of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Puerto Rico and Puerto Rico Police Joint Forces of Rapid Action, in their common goal of securing the borders of Puerto Rico against illegal migrant and drug smuggling.

(FRANCE) Lille Court Report: Two UK residents have been jailed for a combined nine and a half years after the NCA secured their arrests and extradition to France where they were wanted for their part in smuggling at least 250 migrants into the UK #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.23: Through joint work with the Crown Prosecution Service, both were extradited to France in February and September 2020: They were convicted in a French court in Lille last week [13 October 2021] where they appeared alongside nineteen other men, who all operated within an organised crime network that helped facilitate migrant crossings from France into the UK, mainly in the back of lorries.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Two UK residents have been jailed as part of people smuggling ring that saw twenty-one people convicted in France: The men, both Iranian nationals, were arrested by NCA officers two years ago; 38 year-old Hojjat Nickhoo, from Enfield, was held as he tried to leave the country via Heathrow airport in June 2019, while 33-year-old Ayoob Khaleghi was detained following a raid on Nickhoo’s address…..

CASE NOTES: Investigators estimate that the group made over four million pounds in just under a year and were charging migrants £10,000 for an adult, and £9000 for a child: The migrants would be transferred to sites in the North of France, Belgium and the Netherlands, before being transported across the Channel to their destination in the UK: Nickhoo, one of the ringleaders in the group, received a seven year sentence last week – the longest custodial term of all those convicted: Collectively, all of the defendants in court were sentenced to a total of 81 and a half years in prison: Khaleghi received a sentence of two and a half years.

NCA Deputy Director Andrea Wilson, said: “The NCA worked closely with French authorities to track these men down and ensure they went before the court in France: Tragically, we have seen that smuggling people in the back of vehicles and other methods can have lethal consequences: We continue our work to tackle the people smugglers who seek to exploit UK borders and treat migrants as a commodity to be profited from, with no regard for their safety.”

Joanne Jakymec, Chief Crown Prosecutor and Head of the CPS International Justice and Organised Crime Division, said: “The Crown Prosecution Service worked closely with the NCA to support this effective prosecution in France, by securing the extradition of the two UK-based defendants and the transfer of evidence to France.”……………The NCA investigates the highest harm criminal networks, and currently has around 50 ongoing investigations into networks or individuals in the top tier of organised immigration crime or human trafficking.

(WASHINGTON) ICE/HSI Announces ‘rewards’ for information leading to ‘capture,arrest & conviction of Pakistani Migrant Smuggler who facilitates human smuggling network #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.16: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) announces two rewards for information on Pakistani national and human smuggler Abid Ali Khan (Khan). A reward of up to $1 million is offered for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of Khan and a second $1 million reward is offered for information leading to the financial disruption of Khan’s human smuggling network.

#AceDailyNews reports that the ‘Department of State’ offers 2 $1M rewards for information leading to arrest, conviction or financial disruption of Pakistani human smuggler:

Khan allegedly operates a Pakistani-based smuggling network to facilitate the travel of undocumented individuals into the United States from the Middle East and southwest Asia in exchange for payment. In addition to the planning or operations of the illegal and dangerous travel, Khan also provides false documentation to foreign nationals to use for cross-border travel.

Smuggling organizations are both a national security threat and a public safety risk. They take advantage of vulnerable populations and jeopardize their lives through violence, abuse, hostage-taking, or extortion. Human smuggling is a gateway crime for additional criminal offenses, including illegal immigration, identity theft, document and benefit fraud, gang activity, financial fraud, and terrorism. To mitigate this threat, HSI strives to identify, disrupt, and dismantle transnational criminal human smuggling networks operating around the globe.

“Abid Ali Khan is alleged to be a prolific human smuggler who commands a criminal organization that spans the globe. Khan is a very dangerous individual whose activities and associations may pose a national security risk to the United States and our partner nations,” said Anthony Salisbury Special Agent in Charge for Homeland Security Investigations, Miami. “Khan is willing to smuggle individuals by any means necessary which can ultimately place vulnerable migrants in harm’s way. Through our strong domestic and international partnerships, I know we will be able to arrest this individual and stop his illicit activities that facilitate the movement of nefarious actors around the world.”

On April 7, 2021, the Department of Justice unsealed a federal indictment against Khan filed in the Eastern District of Virginia. The indictment charges Khan with Conspiracy to Encourage and Induce an Alien to Unlawfully Enter the United States, Encouraging and Inducing an Alien to Unlawfully Enter the United States, and Bringing an Alien to the United States. On the same date, the Department of the Treasury levied sanctions against Khan pursuant to Executive Order 13581 “Blocking Property of Transnational Criminal Organizations,” stemming from the same criminal conduct.

This reward is offered under the Department of State’s (DOS) Transnational Organized Crime Rewards Program (TOCRP). More than 75 transnational criminals and major narcotics traffickers have been brought to justice under the TOCRP and the Narcotics Rewards Program (NRP) since 1986. DOS has paid more than $135 million in rewards to date.

The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs manages the TOCRP in close coordination with HSI, the Drug Enforcement Administration the Federal Bureau of Investigations, and other U.S. government agencies.

For more information on the individual listed above and the TOCRP and NRP, please see DOS INL Anti-Crime Rewards Program.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move.

HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

(HULL,U.K) Crown Court Report: A gang leader who boasted of smuggling dozens of women into the UK using HGVs and small boats has been jailed for 10 years #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.09: But 33-year-old Mohamad, who also used the name Nazar Masefi, was arrested by NCA officers while in the process of arranging an attempt to smuggle up to 21 people across the channel on a small boat in November 2019…..

#AceDailyNews reports that a gang leader who bragged of smuggling more than 100 women into UK has been jailed for 10 years in a covertly obtained recordings by National Crime Agency investigators, Nzar Jabar Mohamad, from Hull, was heard telling criminal associates in Europe that “I brought too many women, I swear to God I can say I brought more than a hundred over.”

Untitled design 1

Mohamad appeared at Hull Crown Court on Wednesday, 21 April where he admitted a charge of conspiring to facilitate illegal immigration. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison at the same court on Friday, 8 October: The investigation involved the support of the Belgian authorities, whose enquiries continue.

CASE NOTES: During the conversations, recorded at his home in Waterloo Street prior to his arrest, Mohamad also referred to a £6,500 dinghy he had bought which had gone missing. Migrants were to be charged up to £10,000 each to make the crossing to the UK: In irate exchanges with other crime group members based in France and Belgium, Mohamad demanded the return of the dinghy, motor, fuel and 21 lifejackets or his money back: But the crossing attempt never happened as he was arrested at his home on 15 November and subsequently charged with conspiring to facilitate illegal immigration.

NCA Branch Commander Martin Clarke said: “Heartless criminals like Mohamad prey on the desperation of migrants seeking to cross the channel: The primary motivation of these individuals is financial gain, and they could not care less about the welfare of those on small boats or in the back of lorries: Unfortunately for Mohamad, his cover was blown while he was arranging a dangerous small boat crossing. Our intervention helped protect the welfare of those he was seeking to exploit: Working alongside our partners we are determined to do everything possible to disrupt and dismantle the organised criminals behind this despicable trade.”………Dozens of images of small boat equipment, including outboard motors, were found on Mohamad’s phone when it was searched by NCA investigators.

COURT NOTES: Hull Crown Court heard that the crime group he was part of initially smuggled migrants from Belgium and the Netherlands across the channel in HGVs, but diversified into using inflatable dinghies: Mohamad himself came to the UK illegally in April 2019, hiding behind the wind dam of an HGV cab before claiming asylum. During this period, phone records taken from migrants found in lorries showed a handset which was later linked to Mohamad was being regularly used by people smugglers to arrange illegal crossings: NCA officers showed that Mohamad was in contact with two men acting as agents in the Dunkirk migrant camp for individuals wanting to travel to the UK: In other parts of the covert recordings, Mohamad was heard talking about logistical and financial arrangements for transporting migrants on small boats: He also mentioned sending profits home to his family and displayed an in-depth knowledge of people smuggling methods, including weather patterns, risks and the best pick up points to use.

(POLAND) #Migrant Crisis Report: Poland sends thousands of texts to illegal migrants at Belarus border telling them to go back home #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.07: Poland declared a state of emergency at the border with Belarus earlier this month and revealed that some of the migrants “had radical Islamic propaganda in their possession.” The jihadist infiltration through unvetted refugee streams has been a major threat to the security of Western countries across the board, although globalists refuse to acknowledge this.

#AceDailyNews says that back in August, Poland deployed hundreds of troops along the Belarus border and erected barbed wire to stop the influx of illegal migrants. According to ABC News, “Most of the migrants trying to cross over from Belarus are originally from Iraq, with some from Afghanistan and Syria.”

Also:

Some of the migrants are also said to have possessed child pornography and images of bestiality on their mobile devices, which led to a bizarre fact-check by left-wing journalists as to the correct species of animals in the pornography in question.

Poland has remained steadfast in upholding the rule of law and protecting itself from invasion, even under longstanding EU pressure to accept open-door mass migration. Only now there has been a shift in the face of a new challenge from Belarus. European Union Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson accused Belarus President  Alexander Lukashenko of luring “people from the Middle East, Asia, and Africa to the border of Europe.”  She added: “We must never be weak towards Lukashenko. He is desperate.”

Any Western nation in fact that appears (and is) “weak” and unknowledgeable about jihadists, their lies and their manipulations, is contributing to the destruction of its own civilization from within.

Turkey, on the other hand, which would be a more religiously and culturally compatible place for Muslim refugees to settle, has been deporting hundreds of Afghan refugees.

“‘Go home’: Poland sends thousands of text messages to migrants at its border with Belarus,” translated from “”Rentrez” : la Pologne envoie des milliers de SMS aux migrants à sa frontière avec la Biélorussie,” FranceInfo, September 29, 2021:

This is not a welcome message. Poland says it has sent nearly 31,000 text messages to foreign telephones along its border with Belarus on Tuesday, September 28, in an attempt to deter migrants there from entering its territory. “The Polish border is closed. The Belarusian authorities lied to you. Go back to Minsk!”, Read the message in English.

The text messages also contained a link to a site in English, French, Arabic, Russian and Polish warning migrants that crossing the border illegally “can lead to jail.” “Deteriorating weather conditions can endanger your life and health,” the site added. “Any attempt to hide and sleep irregularly (outdoors, unsheltered) can end tragically.” Six migrants recently died on the border between the EU and Belarus.

Immigration orchestrated by Minsk and Moscow?

Poland has deployed thousands of troops to the 400 km border in recent weeks, built a barbed-wire fence and declared a state of emergency that prohibits the press and NGOs from approaching it. With the drop in temperatures, associations spoke of a humanitarian crisis among migrants and asked for access to provide medical assistance.

Poland accuses Russia and Belarus of being at the origin of this wave of illegal immigration at its land border, with nearly 10,000 entry attempts since early August. The European Union sees this as a form of reprisal for the sanctions imposed by the EU against Belarus following the repression of the opposition by the Minsk regime.

A good Samaritan notified Sector Key West watchstanders at 3 p.m., Wednesday, of a man-made sailing raft with nine people aboard approximately nine miles south of Big Pine Key. They were brought aboard the Cutter Isaac Mayo and reported in good health.

“Navigating the Florida Straits in unseaworthy vessels is extremely dangerous,” said Sean Connett, a command duty officer, District 7 Command Center. “The Coast Guard and our partner agencies continue to stop these voyages; you will be interdicted and should you expect to be repatriated to your country of origin.”  

Since Oct, 1, 2020, Coast Guard crews have interdicted 805 Cubans compared to:

  • 5,396 Cuban Migrants in Fiscal Year 2016
  • 1,468 Cuban Migrants in Fiscal Year 2017
  • 259 Cuban Migrants in Fiscal Year 2018
  • 313 Cuban Migrants in Fiscal Year 2019
  • 49 Cuban Migrants in Fiscal Year 2020

Once aboard a Coast Guard cutter, all migrants receive food, water, shelter and basic medical attention. Throughout the interdiction, Coast Guard crew members were equipped with personal protective equipment to minimize potential exposure to any possible case of COVID-19.

(SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico.) USCG REPORT: The Coast Guard Cutter Winslow Griesser repatriated 11 Dominican migrants and returned 12 Haitians to the Dominican Republic Saturday, following the interdiction of an illegal voyage in the Mona Passage #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.03: We urge any person thinking of taking part in an illegal voyage to not take to the sea,” said Cmdr. Beau Powers, Sector San Juan chief of response. “Your life will be at risk, as will the lives of everyone aboard the vessel. The perils are many, including traveling with ruthless smugglers, aboard grossly overloaded makeshift vessels, in dangerous sea states, with little or no lifesaving equipment onboard. Those making this voyage should expect to be returned to their country of origin and also may face prosecution. The dangers are real, please don’t trust your life to a smuggler or in a makeshift vessel.”

#AceDailyNews reports on the interdiction is the result of ongoing Coast Guard and Caribbean Border Interagency group partner efforts to deter and stop illegal voyages in the Mona Passage. Since Oct. 1, 2021, the Coast Guard and CBIG federal and state partner agencies have interdicted and or apprehended 2,100 migrants traveling illegally to Puerto Rico.
