The U.S. Coast Guard returned 10 Cuban migrants to their homeland Wednesday after finding their vessels during two separate interceptions at sea.
Officials said the Coast Guard Cutter Knight Island repatriated the migrants at Bahia de Cabañas, Cuba.
Last week, four people were intercepted aboard a rickety vessel in the Caribbean Sea.
People 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, said, Capt. Brendan McPherson, 7th Coast Guard District chief of enforcement.
A day later, officials picked up six more migrants found on a raft near Marathon in the Florida Keys.
