SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO
Authorities in Puerto Rico have detained 10 undocumented Cuban nationals
who landed on an uninhabited island off the U.S. Caribbean territory.

A statement from the island’s police force says seven women and three
men were found early Saturday on rugged Mona Island west of Puerto
Rico’s mainland. All were reported in good health.

Coast Guard authorities will transport the Cubans to the Puerto Rican
coastal town of Aguadilla later in the day so authorities can determine
their immigration status.

Under the U.S. “wet foot, dry foot” policy, Cubans who reach U.S. soil
are generally allowed to remain in this country. Those intercepted at
sea usually go back.

Mona is closer to the Dominican Republic than Puerto Rico but is
considered U.S. territory
