She reminded that the fine for persons found guilty of such an offence stood at $20,000.Premier Robinson said it was time the TCI sent a strong message that it is a country with laws in place to deal with illegal migrants, as it could not continue to use funds intended for developmental purposes, for detention and repatriation.Questions about why the coastal radar did not detect the illegal sloop went unanswered.Anyone with information on the whereabouts of illegal immigrants  have been asked to contact the relevant authorities.#MagneticMediaNews#27HaitiansCaughtAndSentHome#StifferIllegalImmigrantPenalitiesCominglast_img
