    13 Cuban migrants intercepted at sea just off Dania Beach pier

    13 Cuban migrants intercepted at sea just off Dania Beach pier

    Thirteen Cuban migrants trying to reach U.S. shores were picked up by federal immigration authorities Wednesday just off the Dania Beach pier in Broward, a once common sight that during the last few months has become something of a novelty.


    The immigrants were transferred to a U.S. Coast Guard cutter for medical treatment for dehydration — and, in all probability, a trip back to Cuba — as a small crowd watched from shore.


    In January, during the waning hours of the Obama administration, the U.S. policy that granted entry to any Cuban who reached American soil — known as wet foot, dry-foot — was ended. And since then, U.S.-bound Cuban migrants have virtually disappeared from the Florida Straits. Some 5,000 were apprehended during 2016; but in April, for the first time in seven years, the U.S. Coast Guard didn’t catch a single vessel.


    The migrants stopped about a mile of the pier on Wednesday about, 9:40 a.m. were in a small blue sailboat with the words Dios delante — roughly translated to “God ahead” — lettered on the side. The sailboat was stopped by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection boat, and the migrants were loaded aboard a Fort Lauderdale Fire and Rescue vessel for transfer to the Coast Guard cutter.

    I am not a fan of the wall, I think that is a possibility.

    I'm concerned the wall is just misdirection, perception management, to keep us from realizing the real reason they are coming and staying.

    The employers, the freebies, the lack of law enforcement.

    My husband is American Indian, speaks fluent (real) Spanish. He keeps saying he is going to slip into Mexico then come across the border as an immigrant. He seems to think the 'benefits' are much better.
