    About two dozen people from Cuba tried entering the United States aboard a 30-foot wooden sailboat Tuesday afternoon about 50 miles off Long Key in the middle Florida Keys.

    The vessel was disabled and the people on board were waving their arms when the boaters who reported it to the Coast Guard first spotted it early Tuesday morning, according to a Coast Guard press release.

    The crew of a U.S. Navy destroyer conducting operations in the area arrived first and transferred the 26 people to the Coast Guard Cutter Charles Sexton. The boat was 48 miles off the coast.

    Unfortunate Cuban rafters, they continuous to risk their lives trying to escape in rustic rafts from the Castroit regime, with minimal prospect of being granted asylum since the Obama administration took away the automatic asylum to Cubans rafters that reached U.S. soil.

    Six Cuban rafters arrive on a Honduran island

    The group arrived last Friday in serious conditions of dehydration after two weeks at sea.

    Cubans rafters in the Caribbean Sea

    A group of six Cuban rafters arrived on a Honduran Caribbean island, an official source told ACAN-EFE, noting that some of the immigrants were dehydrated and hungry.

    The Cubans arrived on Friday on a boat to the island of Guanaja, where they were helped by officers of the Naval Force and residents of the area, but their situation was only reported on Saturday afternoon, said a source from the National Institute of Migration who asked for anonymity.

    The Cubans, who have already been identified, remain in the facilities of the National Institute of Migration in Guanaja, which together with Utila and Roatán make up the department of Islas de la Bahía. The authorities will decide if they will be granted permission to cross the national territory or deport them to their country of origin.

    According to the rafters’ account, quoted by the Honduran authorities, they left two weeks ago aboard the raft “El Milagro,” with the idea of later continuing en route to the United States.

    So far in 2019, the Honduran authorities have arrested some 3,000 foreign immigrants, including more than 140 minors, at different customs points for irregularly entering the Central American country, according to figures from the National Institute of Migration. Many of them are of Cuban nationality.
    How lucky these Cuban rafters are to be alive. They left Cuba two week ago in a raft name “El Milagro” (The Miracle) and where without food and dehydrated when miraculously they arrived to the island of Guanaja in Honduras. Most probably they will be deported back to Cuba.

    For 60 years we have had a failed policy toward Cuba.

    Finally Obie made some changes and in comes the orange idiot and ****s it all up again.

    Cuba is a few miles from us. It needs to be a part treated as a respected partner.

    Coast Guard, cruise ship rescue 22 people adrift in Gulf of Mexico for days
    Pardon Our Interruption

    April 15, 2019

    The U.S. Coast Guard said it worked with a cruise ship to rescue 23 people adrift for days in the Gulf of Mexico.

    A Coast Guard news statement issued Sunday saying 22 Cubans started traveling on a wooden boat from Cuba to Mexico before losing power and drifting three days.

    A Cuban-Mexican man took them aboard his sports fishing boat, but then its engines malfunctioned and the group drifted three more days.

    The Coast Guard said it was contacted early Sunday by a brother of one of the Cubans. In addition to launching its own effort to find the disabled fishing boat, the Coast Guard alerted the Carnival Fantasy.

    A Coast Guard Air Station Miami HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircrew located the disabled vessel and directed the Carnival Fantasy toward their location for rescue.
    The cruise ship took the 23 people aboard within hours, about 130 nautical miles (210 kilometers) off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.

    The statement said two of the people rescued had minor medical issues and were treated by medical staff on the cruise ship. It added that the 23 people would be transferred Tuesday to U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Coast Guard Investigative Services in Mobile, Alabama.
    Another group of rafters stranded at sea for days. Cubans continue to risk their lives to escape from the island prison of Dr. Castro. Because the change in law under the Obama administration, they will be sent back to Cuba. If they had reached the Yucatan Peninsula, they would be send back. Since mid-April the Mexican government has send back to Cuba over 500 Cubans stranded in Mexico trying to reach U.S. soil.
