MIAMI, Jan. 12, CMC – The United States Coast Guard says crew members aboard the cutters Bernard C. Webber and Paul Clark, on Saturday, repatriated 76 Cuban migrants to Bahia de Cabañas, Cuba.

The Coast Guard said this stemmed from five separate law enforcement cases. From December 29 through Monday, the vessels were interdicted in the Florida Straits with Cuban migrants aboard.

The Coast Guard said “all migrants safely brought aboard the Coast Guard cutters and were later transferred to the cutter Bernard Webber and Paul Clark for repatriation.”
