The United States Coast Guard (USCG) on Monday seized 37 logs in the deep sea when they tried to reach the coast of Florida.
As reported by the USCG Seventh District on Twitter, the rafts were repatriated by crew member Charles Sexton.
The agency shared a photo of a homemade boat with a screen with 10 people on board. Although the information is not accurate, it seems that 37 logs were carried away in various boats.
The USCG noted that all its sailors and other agencies are preventing people from crossing into the United States illegally, and repeated their warning against going to sea.
“As of October 1, 2022, the Coast Guard has intercepted 5,862 Cubans,” the tweet stated.
Last Friday, the USCG repatriated 26 Cuban logs before they could land in the Florida Keys.
During the week that was from March 3 to 10, the authorities removed a total of 75 migrants from Iceland.
The flow of Cuban immigrants has decreased since January, when Joe Biden’s new policy came into effect, which established almost immediate deportation, or release under deportation orders, of those migrants who attempt to enter the country legally.
However, the Coast Guard and Border Patrol still only detect or take into custody logs coming into the US in waters south of Florida.
From the 1st of March to the 7th of February, migrants returned to Cuba from various countries in the region, mainly from the United States of America.
According to the Ministry of the Interior, quoted by the official Cubadebate, in that time the United States Coast Guard has carried out 25 return operations, while 1,918 have left the country.
However, a total of 43 operations of this type have been carried out, with 2,698 Cubans returning if repatriations from Mexico, the Cayman Islands and other countries approach the country.
On January 5, President Joe Biden announced a humanitarian aid program for Cubans and Nicaraguans. Haitians and Venetians, but those trying to emigrate legally, cannot opt for this benefit.
