    Haiti's prime minister warned Thursday night that the Dominican Republicwas creating a humanitarian crisis with its crackdown on migrants.

    While Dominican authorities said at least 17,000 undocumented had left the country voluntarily since the law moved into effect, Haitian Prime Minister Evans Paul said an estimated 14,000 people had crossed the border in less than a week.

    Evans said the number included both Haitians who had been deported and some who had left the Dominican Republic voluntarily. He said many of the new arrivals were born in the Dominican Republic and should be considered Dominican citizens.

    "That is massive," Paul said.

    According to Haitian authorities the majority of those crossing the border are children and teens. The Dominican government has said deportations will be a slow and lengthy process.

    "It's time to try and fix everything that needs fixing, to improve relations between both countries," Paul said. "But also for the good of the people, for the respect of the people on both sides of the border."

    The U.S. Coast Guard and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are searching for a missing Olympic sailor after his inflatable dinghy was found near Coconut Grove.

    The Coast Guard said a boat belonging to Trevor Moore was found floating near Dinner Key Marina about 6 p.m. Thursday.

    "Something must've happened because the boat came back to the marina," FWC spokeswoman Liz Barraco said. "It was found kind of tied up in some mooring lines without anyone on board."

    Moore's wallet and other personal items were found in the boat.

    The Coast Guard began searching for him by boat and helicopter early Friday morning. The search is focused on an area near Soldier Key, based on GPS data taken from the boat.

    "We see an area where there's a change in direction and a change in speed on the vessel," Barraco said.

    Moore, 30, was a member of Team USA in the 2012 Olympics in London. His online biography lists his current residence as Naples and North Pomfret, Vermont. 

    Many of Moore's family members have joined in on the search for him, and Coast Guard officials said the search conditions are as good as they can be to hopefully bring Moore home.

    Moore's cousin, Jorge Granier, said the Olympic sailor has been living in South Florida for the past three years, teaching children how to sail on Biscayne Bay.

    "If he's out there, we want to find him, and we want to find him soon," Granier said.

    A Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputy accused of domestic battery has been fired.

    Sheriff Richard Ramsay fired Edgar Pineiro in a Friday letter to the deputy.

    Pineiro, 37, was arrested last month by Key West police. He is accused of beating his ex-girlfriend during a May 5 co33048148nfrontation.

    "I have given you several opportunities to correct your behavior," Ramsay wrote in his letter to the deputy. "Unfortunately, your repeated disregard of our policy and procedures and the criminal laws of the state of Florida are unacceptable."

    Ramsay said Pineiro's actions "(diminish) the confidence that the public must have in this office" to protect and serve.

    "Your actions have forced me to choose between your continued employment and the safety and confidence of the public that I am sworn to protect," Ramsay said.

    Pineiro was hired by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office in 2003. He was assigned to security detail at the Key West courthouse but had been suspended since his arrest.

    His termination takes effect immediately.

    Two suspects are in custody after a man was shot Friday during a carjacking in Fort Lauderdale.

    Fort Lauderdale police Detective Kevin Dupree said the incident started on Bayview Drive.

    Dupree said a man, identified as Thomas Jackson, was parked across the street from the Galleria Mall in a blue Ford Explorer when he was approached by the two men.

    The suspects were identified Friday as Abimael Rodriguez, 24, and Daniel Cabrera, 25, who both from Orlando.

    Police said the suspects forced their way into Jackson's vehicle, shot him and drove off with the victim still in the SUV.

    Jackson told Local 10 News that he was shot twice while he was reading his bible inside of her vehicle.

    "The young men walked up to me and talked to me for a while," Jackson said. "(I) told them, 'You don't have to do this, you don't have to go out like this,' because I knew that I didn't want to use my gun and shoot them. So they done that, but the Lord prevailed and the police officers of Fort Lauderdale were on top of everything."

    Jackson, who is a veteran and now works as a security guard, said a bullet is lodged in his jaw and another in his leg.

    The suspects were taken into custody in the 2300 block of Northeast Ninth Street.

    Both men were arrested on charges of robbery-carjacking with a firearm, aggravated battery and kidnapping. Rodriguez also faces a charge of resisting an officer without violence.

    The victim was taken to Broward Health Medical Center in stable condition.

    Four former students at North Miami Senior High School face felony sexual assault charges after allegedly gang raping a mentally disabled student in a janitor's closet, the Miami Herald reported.

    Derek Bynum, 18, Kenoldo Alexis, 17, David Lombard, 17, and Steven Joseph, 15, were arrested in the case. Lombard also faces a charge of battery.

    A fifth student was arrested, but prosecutors dropped the charges against him.

    According to the newspaper, the teens forced the girl to perform oral, anal and vaginal sex acts in January.

    Court documents show that Bynum told police that he didn't know the teen was mentally disabled, but admitted to forcing her to perform oral sex. Police said Bynum told the victim to stop "because she did a terrible job."

    Bynum later wrote a letter to the judge to claim his innocence and apologize.

    "All I want to do is graduate from high school, make my family proud and be somebody. But, this case, I feel like it will ruin my chances and my dreams," Bynum wrote, in part. "I'm sorry. I'm really a good kid."

    The teens were assigned to alternative schools after the allegations were brought to police.

    "The safety and security of our students and staff represent one of our top priorities," Miami-Dade County Public Schools spokeswoman Daisy Gonzalez-Diego said. "While we struggle to understand the senseless depravity of this isolated but disturbing student incident, we commend the deliberate and swift actions of Miami-Dade Schools Police in apprehending the alleged perpetrators. Our thoughts continue to be with the victim and her family. While it is nearly impossible to prevent isolated incidents, a clear understanding and review of all surrounding circumstances is undertaken to further perfect safety and security protocols."

    Presidential hopeful and prominent businessman Donald Trump notified the president/CEO of Univison that his employees are no longer permitted on Trump National Doral property.

    In a letter sent Friday, Trump told Randy Falco, "Please be advised that under no circumstances is any officer or representative of Univision allowed to use Trump National Doral, Miami -- its golf courses or any of its facilities."

    He also told Falco to "immediately stop work and close the gate which is being constructed between our respective properties. If this is not done within one week, we will close it. Also it's too bad you didn't have the courage to call me yourself instead of delegating the task to Beau."

    The letter came a day after the largest Spanish-language TV station announced that it would no longer have a business relationship with Trump, and that it would not air the Miss USA or Miss Universe pageants on its network because of Trump's recent comments about Mexican immigrants.

    Trump quickly threatened a lawsuit against Univision, which he said is bound by a five-year contract.

    After the announcement, Trump tweeted Thursday, "Univision wants to back out of signed @MissUniverse contract because I exposed the terrible trade deals that the U.S. makes with Mexico."

    Trump closed the letter sent to Falco by saying, "P.S. Please congratulate your Mexican Government officials for having made such outstanding trade deals with the United States. However, inform them that should I become President, those days are over. We are bringing jobs back to the U.S. Also, a meaningful border will be immediately created, not the laughingstock that currently exists."

    Trump also fired off at prominent Univision anchor Jorge Ramos after Ramos called Trump's remarks "absurd" and "prejudiced," and then sent him a letter requesting an interview.

    "Univision said they don't like Trump yet Jorge Ramos and their other anchors are begging for interviews," Trump posted Friday to his Instagram account, accompanied by a photo of a handwritten letter sent by Ramos.

    "Mr. Trump: I want to write you personally to request an interview. But so far, your team has declined," Ramos wrote. "I am sure you have a lot of things to say… and I have a lot of things to ask. I'll go to New York or wherever you would like."

    Ramos went on to give Trump his personal cellphone number in case he wanted to talk over the phone first.

    Ramos closed the letter by writing, "I know this is an important issue for you and for me."

    It doesn't appear that Trump will be granting the interview request any time soon.

    Two people are facing manslaughter charges in the death of a woman who was found floating in the water last month near Matheson Hammock Park.

    Miami nightclub owner Russell Bruce, 45, and Alicia Bartolotta, 28, reported Lauren Lamar, 26, missing after the boat on which they were traveling returned from Stiltsville, a cluster of homes on pilings in Biscayne Bay, to Matheson Hammock Park.

    Bruce turned himself in Friday morning and Bartolotto, who lives in Osceola County, was arrested Thursday. The Miami Herald reports that Bartolotto left jail after posting a $100,000 bond.

    Lamar’s body was found floating face-down in the water on May 25.

    According to police, Bruce and Bartolotta claimed that they thought Lamar was sleeping below deck while they were on the boat the night before.

    "I don't know if I've ever heard of someone falling off the boat, especially when there's only three people on board, and the two people that are left on board not realize that that happened," Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Jorge Pino said.

    Bruce and his partner own the nightclub Steam and a speakeasy called Railroad Blues.

    After the Supreme Court declared Friday that same-sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States, local political and religious leaders, advocates and celebrities shared their opinions.

    The historic culmination of controversial litigation over same-sex marriage and same-sex rights prompted a strong emotional reaction among those interested in the issue.

    Same-sex marriage was already legal in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling legalized same-sex marriage in Florida and the other 13 remaining states.

    The Supreme Court ruling will not take effect immediately because the court gives the losing side roughly three weeks to ask for reconsideration.

    These are some of the statements and opinions shared with Local 10 News Friday and some shared on social media.

    The Supreme Court declared Friday that same-sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States, a historic culmination of decades of litigation over gay marriage and gay rights generally.

    Gay and lesbian couples already could marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The court's 5-4 ruling means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage.

    READ: Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage

    A court in Atlanta issued marriage licenses to three same-sex couples Friday morning, soon after the decision.

    Gay rights supporters cheered, danced and wept outside the court after the decision, which put an exclamation point on breathtaking changes in the nation's social norms.

    LISTEN: Arguments | Question 1 | Question 2 |

    Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority opinion, just as he did in the court's previous three major gay rights cases dating back to 1996. It came on the anniversary of two of those earlier decisions.

    "No union is more profound than marriage," Kennedy wrote, joined by the court's four more liberal justices.

    The stories of the people asking for the right to marry "reveal that they seek not to denigrate marriage but rather to live their lives, or honor their spouses' memory, joined by its bond," Kennedy said.

    As he read his opinion, spectators in the courtroom wiped away tears after the import of the decision became clear. One of those in the audience was James Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court fight.

    Outside, Obergefell held up a photo of his late spouse, John, and said the ruling establishes that "our love is equal." He added, "This is for you, John."

    GALLERY: How Supreme Court justices ruled on the issue

    President Barack Obama placed a congratulatory phone call to Obergefell, which he took amid a throng of reporters outside the courthouse.

    Speaking a few minutes later at the White House, Obama praised the decision as "justice that arrives like a thunderbolt." He said it was an affirmation of the principle that "all Americans are created equal."

    READ: Hundreds in Key West celebrate same-sex marriage ruling

    The four dissenting justices each filed a separate opinion explaining his views, but they all agreed that states and their voters should have been left with the power to decide who can marry.

    "This court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in dissent. Roberts read a summary of his dissent from the bench, the first time he has done so in nearly 10 years as chief justice.

    "If you are among the many Americans -- of whatever sexual orientation -- who favor expanding same-sex marriage, by all means celebrate today's decision," Roberts said. "But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it."

    Justice Antonin Scalia said he was not concerned so much about same-sex marriage but about "this court's threat to American democracy." Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas also dissented.

    Several religious organizations criticized the decision and a group of pastors in Texas vowed to defy it.

    Kennedy said nothing in the court's ruling would force religions to condone, much less perform, weddings to which they object.

    The ruling will not take effect immediately because the court gives the losing side roughly three weeks to ask for reconsideration. But some state officials and county clerks might follow the lead of the Fulton County, Georgia, probate court and decide there is little risk in issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

    GALLERY: Most gay-friendly U.S. cities

    The cases before the court involved laws from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee that define marriage as the union of a man and a woman. Those states have not allowed same-sex couples to marry within their borders and they also have refused to recognize valid marriages from elsewhere.

    Just two years ago, the Supreme Court struck down part of the federal anti-gay marriage law that denied a range of government benefits to legally married same-sex couples.

    Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor formed the majority with Kennedy on Friday, the same lineup as two years ago.

    The earlier decision in United States v. Windsor did not address the validity of state marriage bans, but courts across the country, with few exceptions, said its logic compelled them to invalidate state laws that prohibited gay and lesbian couples from marrying.

    The number of states allowing same-sex marriage has grown rapidly. As recently as last October, just over one-third of the states permitted it.

    There are an estimated 390,000 married same-sex couples in the United States, according to UCLA's Williams Institute, which tracks the demographics of gay and lesbian Americans. Another 70,000 couples living in states that do not currently permit them to wed would get married in the next three years, the institute says. Roughly 1 million same-sex couples, married and unmarried, live together in the United States, the institute says.

    The Obama administration backed the right of same-sex couples to marry. The Justice Department's decision to stop defending the federal anti-marriage law in 2011 was an important moment for gay rights, and Obama declared his support for same-sex marriage in 2012.

    The states affected by Friday's ruling are: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, most of Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas.

    Once again, SpaceX will try to recover a very expensive part of its rocket after launching it into space.

    If SpaceX succeeds in recovering the first stage of its rocket after its 10:21 a.m. ET launch on Sunday at Florida's Cape Canaveral, it will be a historical achievement. It will push space travel further toward a future in which people, satellites and other items can be inexpensively launched into orbit.

    If it fails, SpaceX will learn from its mistakes and try yet again.

    SpaceX has made two previous attempts to land the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket onto a platform in the Atlantic Ocean -- once in January and another time in April. Both attempts failed.

    Sticking the landing has proven extremely tricky. After reaching the edge of space, the first stage of the rocket is separated from the rest of the rocket. It goes on to fire gas thrusters to flip itself around, and it plummets back to Earth faster than the speed of sound. It then ignites thrusters to slow itself down, and it has to land vertically on carbon fiber landing legs that deploy right before touchdown.

    In the initial attempt in January, the first stage of the rocket ran out of hydraulic fluid used to steer itself. The second attempt was nearly successful -- it landed vertically on the platform -- but it tipped over after a faulty valve controlling engine power throttled down just a few seconds later than it should have.

    The company has made changes to its rocket that it believes will help prevent its valves from failing in the future.

    SpaceX is trying to recycle the first stage of its rockets, because the first stage alone costs hundreds of millions of dollars -- about the same as a jumbo jet.

    "These landing attempts move us toward our goal of producing a fully and rapidly reusable rocket system, which will dramatically reduce the cost of space transport," SpaceX said in a blog post on Thursday.

    The company said the odds of success are "uncertain." In the past, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has said chances are about 50/50.

    In May, SpaceX successfully tested a different rocket -- its Crew Dragon spacecraft -- in a flight that lasted less than 2 minutes. The test was meant to prove to NASA that the SpaceX crew escape system would work properly if there's an emergency during a flight with people on board. It's all part of the process of certifying SpaceX to become the first private company to carry NASA astronauts to the International Space Station.

    Officials say a mobile home fire in north Florida killed 9 cats, injured a half-dozen more and two dogs.

    Marion County Fire Rescue reports that no people were in the home when the fire began on Thursday, likely from a lightning strike.

    In addition to the cats killed, 10 other felines were treated using oxygen masks and are expected to recover. The two injured dogs were also expected to recover.

    The Ocala Star-Banner reports that 25 firefighters from 13 units responded to the blaze and found nearly half of the home already in flames.

    A couple and their daughter lived in the single-wide mobile home.

    An online petition has been started asking for the removal of the Confederate flag located at one northwest Florida courthouse.

    WJHG-TV in Panama City Beach reports that a petition was started by local residents this week on Change.org asking officials to remove the flag on Walton County Courthouse lawn.

    Other residents have started a separate petition to keep the flag in place.

    A Confederate monument at the courthouse site is maintained by a local museum, while the flag is maintained by the county.

    The local branch of the NAACP is also involved in pushing the petition to take down the flag.

    The debate has been placed on the agenda for discussion at the Walton County Commission's July 14 meeting.

    A man killed who died while working on a roof in Port Orange may be the third reported death this year from a lightning strike.

    The Orlando Sentinel reports that Steven Lee Gang, 25, was pronounced dead at the scene Friday afternoon by authorities.

    An autopsy is pending to determine an official cause of death. The incident remains under investigation.

    Last week, an 81-year-old man in Largo was killed after being struck by lightning while walking down the street.

    In May, a Naples man was hit while working on a home that was under construction.

    A cab driver is recovering in a hospital after being robbed and shot Friday night, while the suspected gunman is in custody.

    Miami-Dade police said officers found the victim, Terrence Guthrie, 63, near Northwest 54th Street and 22nd Avenue.

    Guthrie told officers someone had robbed and shot him.

    The gunman, identified as Mark Simmons, 25, took about $90 from the cab driver and drove off, heading east on Northwest 21st Avenue. The cab driver then followed him inside a convenience store.

    "Upon arrival, the officers were advised by a patron in the store that there was a gentleman that ran into the store and was hiding in the freezer," said Miami-Dade police Detective Marjorie Eloi.

    Miami-Dade police set up a perimeter around the store. After a few hours, they arrested Simmons without incident.

    Guthrie was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he underwent surgery Friday night. His condition is not known.

    A man has been convicted for the second time in the killings of two South Florida convenience store clerks during a robbery.

    A Palm Beach County jury found Darnell Razz guilty Friday, meaning he'll likely be sentenced again to life in prison at an Oct. 22 hearing.

    Razz and co-defendant Robert Alvarez were previously convicted in 2012, but those convictions were later overturned. Alvarez is awaiting his new trial.

    Authorities say the two killed Ralston Muller and Michael Dean Bennett during a masked robbery caught on video at a Greenacres Circle K convenience store in April 2010.

    The Palm Beach Post reports that Razz is also serving a 60-year- sentence for a shooting a robbery that occurred eight days after the Circle K robbery

    Search efforts were suspended Saturday evening for a Olympic sailor who was reported missing after his inflatable dinghy was found near Coconut Grove, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

    The Coast Guard said a boat belonging to Trevor Moore was found about 6 p.m. Thursday floating near Dinner Key Marina.

    The boat's motor was running and Moore's wallet and other personal belongs were found on board. The U.S. Coast Guard said Moore was a member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic sailing team.

    Authorities covered more than 510-square nautical miles and completed more than 29 search patterns before suspending the three-day search, according to the Coast Guard.

    "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones affected," said Capt. Michael Long, Coast Guard Sector Miami deputy commander. "Despite the tireless search efforts by multiple agencies and good Samaritans, we were unable to find Mr. Moore."

    The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is leading the investigation.
