10/03/13 - Miami Herald - US Coast Guard repatriates 63 Cubans
The U.S. Coast Guard announced Thursday that the Cutter Margaret Norvell
had returned 63 Cubans interdicted at sea to the port of Cabañas west of
The 63 were interdicted in five separate events between the 25th and 29th
of September, according to the statement.
A Coast Guard photo that accompanied the announcement showed one of the
interdictions, involving crewmembers from the Cutter Key Biscayne and 21
Cuban migrants stopped on Sept. 27 as they headed to the United States.
All the Cubans intercepted at sea were later gathered in the cutter
Margaret Norvell for their repatriation to the island.
Under the U.S. governments wet-foot, dry-foot policy, undocumented
Cuban migrants who set foot on U.S. territory are allowed to stay, while
those interdicted at sea are generally returned to the island unless they
show a fear of persecution if repatriated.
