OFF SUGARLOAF KEY, Fla. (WSVN) — A total of 34 Cuban migrants were intercepted at sea and sent back to Cuba.

The migrants were stopped at sea during two separate incidents within the last week.

This group of migrants does not include the Cubans that recently climbed a lighthouse in the Keys.

They are being held on a Coast Guard cutter as a judge decides whether they will be able to stay in the States.
