More Cubans arrive as officials deport four men

| 15/04/2013

(CNS): Immigration officials said that a vessel with 15 male Cuban migrants all of which are believed to be first-time arrivals entered the waters off Cayman Brac on Friday night ( 12 April). Three of the man reportedly opted to disembark and end their treacherous journey and transported to Grand Cayman on Sunday morning, while the rest of the men departed around midnight on the vessel destined for Honduras without receiving any assistance. The men arrived just hours after four other Cuban refugees were sent back to the neighbouring island by the local authorities.

The third repatriation of Cuban migrants for 2013 was carried out on Friday afternoon whenfour migrants were escorted home by the Department of Immigration’s Enforcement Section, following approval from the Cuban government. There are plans to return an additional 17 migrants over the next week, which will leave five of the most recent arrivals at the Immigration Detention Centre who are all awaiting processing.

    We all better wake up to this problem. Our money is being spent on helping Cuba while their Government can't care less about getting them back.  All that money can be used here to help our ownpeoples who have lost their job can't find one or just aren't able to get one.

    While others are willing to help them fix their boats give them diesel and some can foods to continue on their trip in search of a freedom they may not know or may not reach. Why we not give them help and hope to reach their dream and then our Government can use that money they keep spending to lock them up to feed and house our own poor and needed peoples.

    Where are the HUMAN RIGHTS FOR THE CUBANS. Why are they being locked up. Instead of helped to continue on their way?

    More still coming asking for HELP. Are we not going to ever allow the peoples to give them water at least?

    Shame when peoples see them out there asking for HELP AND WE CAN NOT ASIST.


    See it for yourself. It's inhumane, insane. Don't treat others they way you don't want to be treated.

    God bless those who heps help them.

      No human rights abuse. That is standard procedure for persons who have entered the country/territory illegally and need to be processed. Ever heard of the Krome Detention Center in Miami?
