MIAMI — U.S. Coast Guard officials say 65 Cuban migrants have been returned to BahÃa de CabaÃ±as, Cuba after having been discovered at sea.
Local media outlets report that seven migrants were brought back to Cuba on Tuesday after two interdictions.
Fifty-eight Cuban migrants — from four interdictions — were repatriated Saturday.
Coast Guard 7th District Chief of Enforcement Capt. Mark Fedor said in a statement that the Coast Guards efforts to secure the U.S.-Caribbean border help prevent tragedies at sea.
Since Oct. 1, the Coast Guard 7th District estimates that 3,611 Cubans have attempted to illegally migrate to the United States.
