As Tuesday morning turned to afternoon, two dozen Cuban migrants began
turning their feet from wet to dry by reaching Elliott Key, east of
Homestead and in Biscayne National Park.

The U.S. Border Patrol said it received the call at 12:30 that a group
of migrants were on Elliott Key. A number of agencies (Border Patrol,
U.S. Coast Guard, Fish & Wildlife, etc.) greeted the group, which turned
out to number 24: 16 males, one of which was a young boy, and eight females.

One man was taken to the hospital with an injured ankle. The rest were
transferred to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection office in Dania
Beach before being turned over to Homeland Security’s Immigrations and
Customs Enforcement office.

The Border Patrol suspects a professional smuggling operation, but
stressed that’s only speculation until the investigation is completed.
