Coast Guard repatriates 232 Cuban migrants

(WSVN) - The Coast Guard has repatriated 232 Cuban migrants since last Wednesday.

The migrants were intercepted at sea between Cuba and South Florida during 19 separate incidents.

Under the “wet-foot, dry-foot policy,” Cuban migrants who make it to U.S. land are allowed to remain, but if they are caught at sea, they are repatriated.
