8 HAITIAN NATIONALS PICKED UP

Jan. 2, 2002 – Immigration officials are holding eight Haitian nationals on charges that they illegally entered St. John on Monday.
In court papers filed Wednesday in District Court, Immigration and Naturalization Service Special Agent Kirk Thomas said police responded to a call from a Coral Bay resident about several possible illegal migrants. When officers responded, they found four wet Haitians and took them into custody.
While they were being processed at the police station in Cruz Bay, another call came in about more possible illegal migrants near the Cruz Bay ferry dock. Police responded and found the other Haitians in that area, Thomas wrote.
They all told investigators they came from Haiti and arrived on St. John earlier that day, according to the court papers.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office filed illegal immigration charges Wednesday against Enel Fils-Aime, Alix Domingue, Vonel Azor, Renel Merone, Richardson Marlos Thanis, Brunot Altidort, Lorleau Alboise and Jn Manor Extanus.
