Multiple law enforcement agencies responded around 9:15 p.m. Aug. 26 after a fishing boat with at least a dozen migrants came ashore in Ocean Ridge. Because of the number of people on the boat, the Department of Homeland Security requested assistance from local law enforcement. Personnel from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Boynton Beach police, Ocean Ridge police and other agencies responded and took part in the apprehension of at least a dozen men, women and children. Aviation, ground, canine, ATV, beach patrol and marine units were all part of the response. The U.S. Border Patrol was investigating the incident.

  • We are very much in favor of legal immigration.  This is a country of immigrants.   But when folks jump the line like this it disrespects everyone that plays by the rules.  Legal immigrants have feelings too.  Who speaks for them?
