USCG Transports 75 Migrants Back to Cuba

The crew of the US Coast Guard Cutter Raymond Evans repatriated 70 Cuban migrants to Bahia de Cabañas, Cuba, and the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Bluefin repatriated five Cuban migrants on Monday.

These repatriations are a result of five separate interdictions at sea in the south Florida Straits. These events consisted of Cubans attempting to illegally enter the United States on unseaworthy vessels.

In fiscal year 2015, 4,462 Cuban migrants attempted to illegally migrate to the U.S. via the sea. These numbers represent the total amount of at-sea interdictions, landings and disruptions in the Florida Straits, the Caribbean and Atlantic.
