U.S. Coast Guard repatriates 23 Cubans who attempted to escape Castro’s paradise

23 Cuban rafters have been intercepted on the high seas by the U.S. Coast Guard and returned to the island. Apparently, these Cubans were not aware of the wonderful changes taking place in Cuba thanks to the magnanimous decrees of dictator Raul Castro. These changes or "reforms," if you listen to the press and the Castro dictatorship's "Cuba Experts" here in the U.S., have turned the island into a veritable paradise.

Coast Guard returns 23 Cubans to their homeland

MIAMI (AP) — Coast Guard crews have returned roughly two dozen Cuban migrants to their island homeland.

Coast Guard officials say 23 migrants were returned Wednesday to Bahia de Cabanas, Cuba.

The migrants were picked up in two separate interdictions between July 19 and July 22. Officials say Customs and Border Protection patrols spotted rustic vessels heading north across the Florida Straits. Coast Guard crews responded to those reports and transferred all the migrants to a cutter.

The migrants received food, water and basic medical care before they were repatriated.

According to Coast Guard records, 782 Cubans have been picked up at sea and returned to their Caribbean home since Oct. 1.
