Second Human Smuggling Incident On Palm Beach Since Sunday


The feds have stopped a second smuggling operation near Mar-a-Lago in as many days.

On back of the arrest of 15 people in a maritime smuggling incident near the President's Palm Beach estate early Sunday morning, U.S. Border Patrol Chief Agent John Modlin says nine foreign nationals were detained on Monday.

Modlin says two of the nine are aggravated felons.

No word yet on the nationalities of those involved in today's round-up.

Of the 15 people taken into custody on Sunday, 14 were from Haiti, including a three-year old child, and one from the Bahamas.
