Due to increased political instability in Haiti, Resolute’s tasking shifted to Alien Migration Interdiction Operations in the Windward Pass; specifically to overtly patrol and discourage unsafe maritime migration voyages. On Sept. 24, Resolute conducted one of the largest single-unit repatriations into Cap Haitien, Haiti in recent history. Small-boat crews conducted 78 consecutive transfers safely returning all 260 migrants and their personal belongings back to Haitian authorities.    

On Sept. 22, Resolute interdicted an overcrowded sail freighter with 183 Haitian migrants including 17 children and infants aboard. Bound for the United States, the 55-foot vessel was dangerously overloaded and lacked sufficient navigation and safety equipment to make the journey. All 183 migrants were transferred safely to the cutter where they were provided food, water, shelter, and medical attention. In less than 24-hours, Resolute received an additional 77 migrants from another Coast Guard asset, raising the total count to 260.

“The migrant interdiction mission is always unique; while the migrants are attempting to escape the poor living conditions in Haiti, their unsafe voyages risk the lives of innocent people, including children,” said Petty Officer 1st Class Joseph Wooley, a maritime enforcement specialist. “It is unfortunate to see, but it makes us feel good knowing that we potentially saved 183 people from capsizing and drowning at sea.”

After a long and successful patrol, the crew is eager to return home and spend the holiday season with friends, family and loved ones.

“The crew’s actions during this patrol were heroic and inspiring. I am especially impressed with their professional dexterity and ability to shift from counter-drug operations to humanitarian missions in a moment’s notice, embracing our service motto: Semper Paratus-Always Ready,” said Cmdr. Justin Vanden Heuvel, commanding officer of Resolute.

Resolute is a 210-foot Reliance class cutter and has a crew of 72. Resolute was commissioned on December 8, 1966, and is homeported St. Petersburg, Florida.

(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.

(HUNGARY) Migrant Crisis Report: PM Viktor Orbán believes the mass migration agenda is part of a “global plan” to create a “new proletariat” in the West, advanced by people who care nothing for culture and national identity and consider only economics #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.04: Like those before me, we are concerned about the advent of the New Marxist, New Leftist ‘woke’ movement, as it is called in America. We can see that already in kindergartens they want to miseducate our children; they use children as Pride activists, they are telling children about the ‘free choice of genre — this is part of the New Marxist ‘woke’ programme,” he warned.

#AceDailyNews Report: Orban: Speaking at the 4th Budapest Demographic Conference, organised as a forum where pro-family policies and other measures to reverse population decline without resorting to mass immigration, Orbán addressed attendees including former U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, the President of Serbia, the Serbian President of Bosnia, and the prime ministers of Slovakia and Slovenia, noting that the cause of national conservatism had “suffered sensitive political losses” in recent years.

Breitbart – 24 Sep 2021ATTILA KISBENEDEK/AFP via Getty Images

Decades of Soviet communist domination, however, has “inoculated” former Eastern Bloc countries such as Hungary and Poland against “the ‘woke’ virus”, in his view — “our history is protecting us against the cultural left.”

Serb Prez Laments West’s ‘Liberal-Marxist’ Culture Where Instagram Dog Pics Get More ‘Likes’ Than Kids https://t.co/d8CBwP6PJk

— Breitbart London (@BreitbartLondon) September 23, 2021

As a result, the Hungarian leader suggested, his government and likeminded administrations in the region can see the divide on demographics more clearly.

“Is it a problem that the population is in decline?” he asked.

“The West… just does not want to maintain itself. Let’s not beat around the bush: certain civilisations are able to reproduce; the Western civilisation is not able to reproduce — so much so that they are unable to decide whether this is a problem at all.

“Some are of the opinion that this is not a problem, and they argue that by increasing productivity and by developing technology fewer people will be able to generate more goods, more public good. Mechanised production, artificial intelligence, an automated economy — human labour doesn’t count anymore. That is the technocratic, Silicon Valley solution,” he explained.

“And there are others who sense the problem of declining demographics and they want migration. They believe alien peoples from distant lands should be moved in and that will stop the demographic decline. But mass migration… the millions of people who have been lured here, are basically a global plan of moving in the new proletariat,” he accused, adding that the promoters of this worldview “do not take into account the cultural aspect of democracy.”

Migration, Orbán explained, “is an identity issue” — and “a country will only be viable if its citizens share largely the same values — if not, the nation, the country, will fall apart.”

“The 2015 European migration crisis brought terror to Europe as well,” said Orban, warning of the threat of an Afghan exodus. “Hungary will defend Europe’s borders. We are working to ensure that what happened in New York 20 years ago never happens again.” https://t.co/31Gm0G3BWk

— Breitbart London (@BreitbartLondon) September 11, 2021

Hungary’s plan to reverse demographic decline while rejecting mass migration to maintain its cultural identity and social cohesion, Orbán told the conference, is built around the fundamental principle that “the state has to protect the family, and the state has to do away with all the obstacles to establishing families” as the building blocks of society.

To that end, the Central European country’s family policy was constructed around the principle that “having children should be an advantage financially, not a disadvantage,” given the plain fact that “negative economic consequences” for starting a family “will discourage many from having children” in the first place.

The Hungarian leader acknowledged, of course that “it is very easy to dole out money to families, you don’t need much brains to do that — but we know that if we dole out too much money that will first slow down economic performance and later destroy the economy,” and so his administration has pursued “unorthodox” steps to strike a balance between family support and consistent economic growth.

These have included the introduction of grandparental leave, the suspension of student loan repayments for young women expecting a child — and student debt forgiveness after a certain number of children — as well as exempting mothers of four from income tax for life, and government-backed loans for the purchase of family homes and cars, among other measures.

Mothers, he explained, were at the heart of the policies, due to the hard fact that women are most likely to enter the workforce at the time when they would otherwise be most likely to have children — something they may end up drastically delaying or never doing at all, even if they would like to, if there is no “economic rationale” for it.

“We want women to be able to choose,” he said, explaining that “if they want, they can work” — but that they should never feel they “need to work” to survive under the Hungarian economic model.

Multiculturalist Liberals Hate Hungary for Being a Pro-Borders, Traditional Values Success Story: Orban https://t.co/mkfpoH7C60

— Breitbart London (@BreitbartLondon) August 7, 2021

As a result of the policies, Orbán claimed, “we have almost doubled marriages” and enjoyed a “41 per cent decline in abortion” since 2010 — but the experiment has not come without its consequences.

“I should tell you honestly, we are defending ourselves, Hungary is defending itself, against attacks from the Western left; they are attacking the traditional family model” he warned.

These attacks have not come only in the form of direct criticism of the economic policies aimed at empowering couples to start families — and save the country at large from a demographic time bomb — which are often painted rather ungenerously as a retrograde plot to turn women into “baby machines” — but through part of a broader cultural push to “relativise the notion of the family”.

The favoured “tool” for this, Orbán alleged, is “the LGBTQ and the gender lobby”.

The Hungarian leader has earned fierce criticism from the EU for recently passed legislation aimed at tackling this by making it illegal to promote LGBTQ content on things like changing gender to minors in schools and the media, but he believes the Hungarian position is not so far away from that of the Western European public as the outcry would suggest.

“In Western Europe and in Brussels, nobody has ever asked the people about LGBTQ propaganda or about migration,” he said.

Hungary shot back against the “unprecedented attacks” from the European Commission over the issue of LGBT ideology being taught in schools, pronouncing that deciding how children are educated is the “exclusive right of Hungarian parents”. https://t.co/lHXxmL0QMo

(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.

#AceNewsReport – Aug.24: For several weeks before the Taliban seized total control of the country this weekend, the town hall had already been working with the Home Office and Foreign Office to place people fleeing to safety in initial quarantine.

#AceDailyNews says that the City of Manchester has already accommodated 1,000 refugees fleeing Afghanistan,” by Jennifer Williams, Manchester Evening News, August 19, 2021:

It is understood that at present, capacity in the three hotels being used in Manchester is therefore full and the government is seeking to place people in other parts of the country.

The hotels being used are not being disclosed by either the council or the Home Office.

The government announced plans this week to receive 20,000 refugees from Afghanistan over the next four years, after the departure of Western troops triggered the almost immediate takeover of the Taliban and led to thousands of people trying to flee via Kabul airport this weekend, some of them hanging off planes in a desperate bid to escape.

However prior to that there had already been a more managed government evacuation underway of British-Afghan nationals and people who had been working to support the Western military presence, such as interpreters.

Hundreds of people in that initial phase of evacuations have been quarantined in Manchester over the last fortnight, meaning that at present the city has not been asked to accommodate any more refugees. Sources said the situation was changing almost hourly, but that the government has been concentrating on finding hotel space in other parts of the country….

(ATHENS) Afghanistan Migrant Crisis Report: Greece has installed a 40km (25-mile) fence and surveillance system on its border with Turkey amid concern over a surge of migrants from Afghanistan #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.21: In a telephone conversation with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said a sharp increase in people leaving Afghanistan could pose “a serious challenge for everyone”.

#AceDailyNews says Greece has erected a fence at Turkey border amid warnings of Afghan migrant surge we cannot wait, passively, for the possible impact,” Greece’s Citizens’ Protection Minister Michalis Chrisochoidis said on a visit to the region of Evros on Friday and his comments came as Turkey called on European countries to take responsibility for Afghan migrants.

“Our borders will remain inviolable.”

“A new wave of migration is inevitable if the necessary measures are not taken in Afghanistan and in Iran,” Mr Erdogan said. 

The rapid takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban, an Islamist militant group, has left some fearing for their lives and seeking to escape the country, often by any means necessary.

Mr Chrisochoidis said the crisis had created new “possibilities for migrant flows” into Europe. A child is handed over the wall at Kabul airport, as the chaos continues

Greece, which was on the frontline of the migrant crisis in 2015 when more than a million people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East crossed from Turkey into the EU, has said it may send back any Afghans that arrive illegally through the country.

Of those who arrived in Greece during the migrant crisis, many travelled further north throughout Europe, but about 60,000 have remained in the country.

Last year, Athens temporarily blocked new asylum applications after Mr Erdogan said Turkey had “opened the doors” for migrants to travel to the EU.

Mr Mitsotakis said at the time that Greece had increased “the level of deterrence at our borders to the maximum”, with security personnel deployed to the Evros land border.

(CALAIS, France.) #MigrantCrisis Report: An illegal-migrant has been airlifted to hospital after a boat carrying around 40 people began to sink in the English Channel #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.13: The vessel is believed to have begun filling up with water as it headed for the UK this morning: The rescue operation, involving French and Belgian air and sea units, is ongoing, authorities in France say…..

#AceDailyNews says that a boat carrying 40-illegal-migrants starts sinking in English Channel just off-the-coast of Dunkirk sparking rescue involving French & Belgium rescue services today and were taken to a hospital in Calais…..

One unconscious passenger was airlifted to hospital in Calais (Picture: Shutterstock)

Searches started at around 10am after a cargo ship reported that a boat carrying around 40 people was in difficulty off the coast of Dunkirk, with some people already overboard. 

An unconscious person taken aboard the cargo ship’s lifeboat and transferred onto a French Navy vessel was later airlifted to hospital in Calais.

He is believed to have suffered cardio-respiratory arrest and was evacuated aboard a Belgian Air Force helicopter.

Several others were also hoisted aboard the aircraft as the migrant boat was sinking while more were rescued by nearby fishing vessels. 

They were all transferred onto the French Navy’s Flamant patrol boat, which headed for the port of Dunkirk.

Search and rescue operations remained under way in the Dover Strait, with a French Navy helicopter continuing to scour the area.

Following days of bad weather, lighter conditions today have seen a flurry of crossing attempts.

The latest bids to reach the UK come after French authorities intercepted at least 108 people trying to cross the Channel yesterday, with one person having to be airlifted to hospital in Dunkirk.

More than 10,000 people including children have made the dangerous sea journey from France so far this year. 

This is considerably higher than the 8,410 people who made the crossing during 2020. 

Among them were Rasoul Iran-Nejad and his wife Shiva Mohammad Panahi, who died along with their three children when their boat capsized on October 27.

Their 15-month-old son Artin was reported missing following the tragedy and it was not until June this year that police confirmed a body found on the Norwegian coast was that of the young boy.

Coast Guard repatriates 11 migrant survivors rescued by the MSC Giselle from capsized illegal voyage in the Mona Passage…

The survivors are 10 adult men and a male minor, who were rescued by the MSC Gisselle after their inflatable boat took on water and capsized, approximately 20 nautical miles northwest of Mona Island, Puerto Rico.

Coast Guard watchstanders at Sector San Juan received a communication at 8:20 p.m. Saturday from the MSC Giselle, a 984-foot Panamanian flagged container ship, informing the ship was on scene with a capsized vessel and people in the water.

Coast Guard watchstanders diverted the Coast Guard Cutter Donald Horsley and a HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircraft to the scene.  Shortly thereafter, the MSC Giselle relayed the crew was able to rescue all persons from the capsized vessel.  Upon arriving on scene, the crew of the cutter Donald Horsley embarked and rendered assistance to the migrants.

Once aboard a Coast Guard cutter, all migrants receive food, water, shelter and basic medical attention. 

“Illegal migrant voyages are exceedingly dangerous, and these 11 individuals are very fortunate to be alive thanks to the master and crew of the MSC Giselle,” said Lt. Charles Chavtur, Coast Guard Cutter Donald Horsley commanding officer. “I’m glad we were able to arrive quickly, assist the survivors and ensure their safe return to the Dominican Republic.”

“To anyone considering taking part in an illegal migrant voyage across the Mona Passage, don’t take to the sea, you are putting your life and the life of others at risk,” said Cmdr. Beau Powers, Sector San Juan chief of response. “These highly dangerous voyages often take place aboard unseaworthy grossly overloaded makeshift boats, which continuously take on water and have little or no lifesaving equipment onboard.”

The Coast Guard Cutter Donald Horsley is a 154-foot fast response cutter homeported in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

New video shows ​nearly a thousand illegal immigrants being held by border patrol agents under a bridge near the southern border in Texas — with a top Republican calling it an “absolute catastrophe,” as the Biden administration continues to take heat for the escalating migrant crisis.

“An absolute catastrophe from Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and House & Senate Democrats. #BidenBorderCrisis,” GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) wrote on Twitter Sunday, linking to the footage posted by Bill Melugin of Fox News in Los Angeles.

“NEW: This is the largest group of migrants we’ve ever seen being held by Border Patrol under Anzalduas Bridge in Mission, TX. Looks like it could be up to 1,000 people. We can only get a look at the area with our drone. There’s a popular Rio Grande crossing area nearby,” Melugin posted along with drone footage of the incident.

The Biden White House has been under mounting pressure to find a way to respond to the crisis at the border caused after the president rolled back or reversed many of the immigration policies put in place by former President Donald Trump.

Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) also called on the administration to take action.

“Our DHS agents, & border communities, are overwhelmed & must be prioritized. DHS will again encounter over 180,000 immigrants at the southern border during July—adding to the more than 1M immigrants that have arrived at the southern border in FY21. Something has to change!” he said in a Twitter post that linked to the video.

Cuellar and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) sent a letter to Biden last week, urging him to name former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson as border czar.

In March, 13 migrants died during a similar incident in southern California, after their vehicle collided with a truck. In the aftermath, federal prosecutors charged a 47-year-old US resident for transporting unauthorized individuals into the country.

#AceNewsReport – July.28: Throughout the patrol, the crew of the Harriet Lane worked in conjunction with a diverse array of US and foreign military assets to conduct vital training and perform its assigned law enforcement mission, which included interdicting one go-fast vessel carrying approximately 882 pounds of suspected cocaine with an estimated street value of $16 million.

Coast Guard Cutter Harriet Lane crewmembers interdict $16 million worth of illicit drugs, return home following 72-day Caribbean Sea patrol

The interdiction was conducted jointly with USS Wichita (LCS 13). Harriet Lane’s crew assumed tactical control of Wichita’s helicopter, which employed airborne use of force executed by a trained Coast Guard crew member. The helicopter disabled the vessel and vectored in Harriet Lane’s small boat with embarked boarding team. Harriet Lane crews also conducted multiple at sea transfers of suspected illegal narcotics and drug-smugglers with the Dutch Navy aboard HNLMS Holland and facilitated the at-sea interdiction of a suspected drug smuggling vessel by the French frigate Ventôse. 

In addition to operations, the Harriet Lane crew conducted a towing exercise with the USS Wichita, taking the 378-foot littoral combat ship in tow. During the evolution both vessels exchanged crew members of various rates and rank to provide exposure and promote professional development. This exercise provided invaluable training for both crews and strengthened the special relationships amongst the seagoing services. The crew of Harriet Lane hosted Consul General Allen Greenberg, the U.S. Consul General for Curacao and U.S. Chief of Mission for the former Dutch Antilles. Amidst, operations, joint military training, and acts of diplomacy, the cutter crew also completed aviation, damage control, seamanship, and navigation training to maintain operational readiness and prepare for future multi-mission patrols.

“I am tremendously humbled to have completed my first patrol aboard Harriet Lane with this fine crew of maritime professionals,” said Cmdr. Ben Goff, commanding officer of the Harriet Lane “Throughout, we showcased a diversity of talent unique to the world’s best Coast Guard. I am extremely proud of the crew for their unwavering flexibility and selfless service amidst a variety of scheduling changes and mission challenges. Likewise, it was a true privilege to conduct operations and training with our US, Dutch, and French navy partners.”  

Harriet Lane is a 270-foot medium endurance cutter responsible for a variety of Coast Guard missions, including search and rescue, enforcement of laws and treaties, maritime defense, and protection of the marine environment.

(PARIS) #MigrantCrisis French authorities said on Friday they had rescued a boatload of 42 migrants in the English channel after their boat got into difficulty #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.26: The emergency services were alerted by the migrants, and a rescue vessel picked them up in the sea off the Pas-de-Calais area, according to a French police statement.

#AceDailyNews says that U.K. reportedly paid France £54-million to search for illegals leaving their country and they say they have rescued a boatload of 42 migrants in the English Channel and they were taken to the nearby port of Boulogne-sur-Mer, and all are in good health, the statement said.

July. 23, 20217:32 PM BSTLast Updated 14 hours ago

Thousands of migrants each year attempt the dangerous sea crossing from France to the coast of Britain, often paying human smugglers to help them through one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes in overloaded rubber dinghies: Britain has repeatedly pressed French President Emmanuel Macron’s government to do more to prevent the migrants leaving France.

When Europe turns a blind eye: Life and death in the Mediterranean – Reporters

In the Mediterranean, the years go by and almost nothing changes. In 2021, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), 955 people have already died trying to reach Europe by sea – twice as many as during the same period last year. NGOs believe these figures are no doubt an underestimate.

According to the 1974 International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), coastal states have a legal obligation to organise and assist searches in the event of a distress signal. However, since 2016, civil society groups have been plugging the gap.

On April 21, the Ocean Viking began a race against time to try to rescue a dinghy in distress amid a storm, with nearly 130 people on board. But without assistance from the competent authorities, the vessel arrived too late at the scene of a fatal shipwreck. 

A few days later, 236 survivors, including 119 minors, were rescued from two other inflatable boats on which they were adrift, before being transported to a port on the European continent. Among them were men, women and children fleeing the hell for migrants that is Libya

In this documentary, FRANCE 24 brings you an in-depth look at the reality for migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean in search of a better life.

(AUSTIN, Tx.) #MigrantCrisis Report: Rep.Gov.Gregg Abbot: Actions have arrested 10-illegals on ‘Trepassing Charges’ on the ‘Mexico Border’ and more are on the way according to officials #AceNewsDesk report

#AceDailyNews says that Texas begins arresting illegal-migrants on trespassing charges along US-Mexico border and has jailed 10 so far after he announced his plan in June when he also said that the state would continue building former President Donald Trump’s border wall and called on other governors to deploy law enforcement and National Guard members to the southern border.

The detainees are being held at what had been an empty state prison in Dilley, Texas, about 100 miles (160.93 kilometers) north of the border city of Laredo, said Robert Hurst, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. He said the converted facility will be able to hold more than 950 people.

All of those arrested so far have been single adult men, according to Val Verde County Attorney David Martinez, who said he was advised last week that the number of migrant arrests could increase to as many as 100 or 200 per day. Such large numbers, he said, “would overwhelm not only my office, but our entire system pretty quickly.”

Most land along the southern Texas border is private, but Martinez said his understanding was that state troopers would not arrest family units. Last week, U.S. officials reported that they had encountered 55,805 members of families with children in June, which was up 25% from the previous month. That figure still remains far below the high of 88,587 in May 2019.

“If John Doe is caught on my property and he has his wife and his children with him, chances are he’s not going to be arrested,” Martinez said. “That’s what’s been represented to me.”

A spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety did not immediately return a message Thursday.

Val Verde County, which has around 50,000 residents, has become the backdrop of Abbott’s criticism of President Joe Biden over the border as the two-term governor, who is up for reelection in 2022, has sought to take Trump’s mantle on immigration. He returned to the county last weekend along with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and other officials, including Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, who tweeted this week that she had tested positive for COVID-19.

“The state jail commission has worked out a way to jail far more people that are currently being jailed,” Abbott said during his visit on Saturday.

But the largest Texas counties along the southern border, where crossings are typically the highest, have rejected Abbott’s offer to heighten enforcement and accept disaster declarations, which governors typically only grant during events like hurricanes or wildfire.

Migrants arrested by state troopers for trespassing first began showing up to the former prison on Tuesday. Prison officials said in a statement said that preparations for the facility included temporary air conditioning – which many Texas prisons don’t have in living areas – and training and licensing jailers.

Since first announcing earlier this summer that Texas would begin charging migrants with state crimes, Abbott has said law enforcement would not be involved in “catch and release” and said those arrested would spend time behind bars. But Martinez said he would handle the cases same as usually does, which typically means offering time served.

“My office is working really hard to try to minimize the amount of time that they have to sit in that jail,” he said.

(ATHENS) NCA Project Invigor Report: Eight arrested in Greece targets major international people smuggling network intercepted on July.14: 2021: #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.23: The operation saw a speedboat intercepted off the island of Lefkada on 14 July as it headed towards Italy, carrying 14 migrants: The vessel attempted to out-run Greek authorities, but was eventually stopped after coastguards fired warning shots. The pilot was arrested after throwing himself into the sea in an attempt to escape, leaving the migrants adrift…

#AceDailyNews reports that officers from Project Invigor, the National Crime Agency-led taskforce targeting organised immigration crime, have taken part in an operation which has seen eight members of a major people smuggling network arrested in Greece in July…

Shortly afterwards another seven people were arrested as Greek police raided a number of properties in Athens, seizing cash, mobile phones, forged travel documents and another boat: Those arrested included three Iraqi nationals, two Greek nationals, two Ukrainian nationals and one Turkish national. They will all now face charges: The organised crime group is alleged to have charged migrants between five and seven thousand euros to transport them through Greece and then onwards towards Italy: Many would then move up into northern Europe, with some ending up trying to reach the UK: NCA officers, working as part of Project Invigor, played a crucial role in the operation, helping the Hellenic Police identify and locate the OCG’s leaders and providing support to the overall investigation.

Dave Hucker, Regional Head for NCA International, said: Through Project Invigor we are seeking to attack the people smuggling OCGs impacting upon the UK at every step of the route, in source countries, in transit countries like Greece, as well as at the UK border: This operation, which saw us work in partnership with the Greek police, is an example of that in action: There is no doubt that some of the migrants smuggled from Turkey, through Greece and onwards by this OCG would have ended up attempting to enter the UK illegally as well: Those involved in organised immigration crime are ruthless and happy to treat people as a commodity to be profited from. We are determined to do all we can to stop them: Project Invigor is the UK’s organised immigration crime taskforce set up to target the criminal networks behind people smuggling impacting on the UK: Led by the NCA, it also includes Border Force, Immigration Enforcement and the Crown Prosecution Service. Officers work in the UK and internationally.
