VAST Challenge 2008 - MC2 - Migrant Boats

This data comprises records dealing with the mass movement of persons departing Isla Del Sueño on boats for the United States during 2005 - 2007. This activity was precipitated by the Isla Del Sueño government crackdown on the Paraiso social and religious movement which had been gaining popularity there. The dataset includes not only interdiction records collected by the United States Coast Guard (i.e. arrests at sea), but also information from other sources about illegal landings on shore.
