The agents identified the 13 Cuban migrants as including 11 adults and two juveniles. The migrants made the dangerous crossing in a homemade vessel, Slosar stated.

While migrant apprehensions dropped during the past three months, agents in this sector apprehended 5,314 migrants through the first seven months of the current fiscal year. According to the CBP Nationwide Encounters Report for April, this seven-month total exceeds the previous two years combined. The report indicates 4,568 of the 5,314 migrants apprehended this year in the Miami Sector are Cuban nationals.

Miami Sector agents apprehended another 23 Cuban migrants earlier this month, Slosar tweeted. These migrants landed in a makeshift sailing vessel in the Florida Keys near Islamorada.
