Coast Guard repatriates 64 Cuban Migrants

Coast Guard District 7 NewsMIAMI — The Coast Guard repatriated 64 Cuban migrants to Bahia de Cabañas, Cuba, Friday.

The migrants were interdicted at sea during two separate cases since Oct. 28.

“Migrants attempting to illegally enter the United States by boat often travel aboard dangerously overloaded and ill-equipped vessels,” said, Capt. Brendan McPherson, 7th Coast Guard District chief of enforcement. “Illegal migrants aboard these vessels are putting their lives at extreme risk, so the Coast Guard with our partner agencies will continue to patrol vigilantly to rescue and repatriate undocumented migrants who take to the sea.”

All migrants interdicted were provided with food, water, shelter and basic medical attention.
