Sixty-four Cuban migrants aboard the US Coast Guard Cutter Kathleen Moore were repatriated to Bahia de Cabañas, Cuba, Monday.
This repatriation is a result of five separate migrant interdictions at sea in the south Florida Straits. These events were Cubans trying to illegally enter the United States on unseaworthy vessels.
Coast Guard assets involved in these interdictions were Coast Guard Cutters Kathleen Moore, William Trump and Mohawk, homeported in Key West, Florida.
Since Oct. 1, the Coast Guard 7th District estimates that 3,910 Cubans have attempted to illegally migrate via the sea. These numbers represent the total amount of at-sea interdictions, landings and disruptions in the Florida Straits, the Caribbean and Atlantic.
