A community known for housing Haitian families, legal or illegal, is now seeing intervention from Bahamian government officials.

CBS12 News highlighted the Sun Banks, also known as the Sand Banks, in previous reports. Operation 300, a non profit group from Stuart, relocated some of those families to a nearby church to give them better housing and access to food.

Since those reports, government officials have fenced off the area, rearranged the damaged cars and placed heavy machinery nearby.

According to a local article by the Nassau Guardian, Bahamian officials are calling to tear down remaining structures left in the Sand Banks, but an injunction is preventing that from happening.

Many people who lived in that area are now living at a nearby church, but they’re still not sure what their future looks like.
