According to the U.S. Coast Guard, that sum has contributed to the more than 1,000 Cuban migrants intercepted at sea in the fiscal year 2014, compared to 1,357 in all of 2013."We may wind up doubling the number of Cubans we interdicted last year," said Timothy Cronin, the deputy chief of enforcement for the Seventh Coast Guard District."
