U.S. sends 13 irregular migrants back to Cuba

Havana, May 7 (Prensa Latina) The U.S. Coast Guard on Tuesday deported back to Cuba 13 irregular migrants who had left illegally on April 23 from the southern city of Cienfuegos to Mexico.

10 men and three women were sent back to the port of Orozco, in Bahía Honda, Artemisa province, in the 14th migration operation by the U.S. Coast Guard, the Cuban Interior Ministry (MININT) posted on its official website.

According to MININT, one of deportees was on probation for serving criminal penalties at the time he left Cuba.

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