Coast Guard repatriates 56 Cuban migrants


The Coast Guard repatriated a total of 56 migrants back to Cuba as a result of two different operations Monday and Wednesday.

A spokesman with the 7th Coast Guard District said the migrant activity in the Florida Straits is usual for this time of the year.
