    Coast Guard stops a migrant boat off the Florida Keys with about 20 people

    Coast Guard stops a migrant boat off the Florida Keys with about 20 people







    U.S. Coast Guard

    U.S. Coast Guard crews and agents with Customs and Border Protection stopped a migrant boat off the Florida Keys Wednesday afternoon with about 20 people on board.

    The stop happened about three miles off Boot Key Harbor in the Middle Keys city of Marathon around 2 p.m., said Petty Officer 3rd Class Ryan Estrada, a Coast Guard spokesman.

    The Coast Guard declined to comment on the nationality of the migrants, but initial reports were that their boat was a “chug,” or the type of makeshift vessel Cuban migrants often use to make the dangerous journey across the Florida Straits.

    The boats range widely in degree of seaworthiness — some made with sturdy materials like welded-together steel and fuel drums, and others, like one stopped off Big Pine Key Dec. 21, made from hastily tied-together rubber tubing and wood.

    Agents with Customs Air and Marine Operations took part in Wednesday’s interception, Estrada said.

    The people on the boat will likely be placed on a Coast Guard cutter and returned to their country of origin, he said.

    South Florida, especially the Keys, is at the receiving end of the largest maritime exodus from Cuba in nearly a decade. Since the beginning of October, the start of the fiscal year, the Coast Guard has stopped more than 3,840 people at sea from Cuba attempting to reach the U.S., the agency said this week.

    At this rate, maritime interceptions will almost triple last fiscal year’s number of 6,182 people, which was already the highest in eight years.

    They should all be returned whether they come by air, land, or sea!

    Stop picking and choosing who can break our laws. They all go home! Every damn one of these criminal trespassers.
