MIAMI — Coast Guard officials say 45 Cuban migrants picked up in the
waters off the Florida Keys have been returned to their Caribbean homeland.

A Coast Guard crew intercepted an “aluminum rustic vessel” carrying 25
migrants Saturday in the waters southwest of Key West. In a separate
interdiction later Saturday, the crew found another 20 migrants aboard
an unseaworthy vessel south of the Dry Tortugas.

All the migrants were returned Wednesday to Bahia de Cabanas, Cuba. They
received food, water and medical care while aboard Coast Guard vessels.

Coast Guard officials say that in the 2014 fiscal year that began Oct.
1, roughly 5,100 Haitians, 3,400 Cubans and 560 Dominicans have been
intercepted while trying to illegally migrate to U.S. shores by sea.
