Migrants from the U.S. returned to Cuba

Havana, Aug 18 (Prensa Latina) A group of 29 irregular migrants was returned to Cuba on a charter flight from the United States, the corresponding authority informed.

According to the website of the Cuban Ministry of the Interior (MININT), 28 men and one woman, who had previously reached U.S. soil in an irregular manner, arrived on Thursday at the José Martí International Airport in the capital.

Of those returned, five left the country illegally by sea and were detained upon arrival in U.S. territory, while the others travelled abroad legally and then joined irregular routes to reach the northern nation, the note from the MININT pointed out.

The publication adds that this is the fifth air operation from the United States, totaling 289 persons returned to the island by this route.

According to the publication, the total number of irregular migrants returned amounts to 4,249 so far, in 2023, in 98 operations by air and sea from countries in the area.

Cuban authorities maintain their firm commitment to safe and orderly migration, while reiterating the danger and life-threatening conditions posed by illegal departures from the country by sea, the note stresses.
