(MIAMI,Fla.) USCG REPORT: Coast Guard Cutter Charles David Jr.’s crew repatriated three Cuban migrants to Cuba, Wednesday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.18: “ These migrant ventures are not only illegal, but in many cases very dangerous,” said Lt. Gregory Mitchell, commanding officer of cutter Charles David Jr. “In many cases, including this one, the vessels we interdict are unseaworthy and have little to no safety or communications equipment. We strongly encourage anybody even thinking of taking to the sea to go through the proper, legal channels for immigration.”

Coast Guard repatriates three migrants to Cuba: ‘The three Cuban migrants were interdicted Sunday by the Coast Guard Cutter Venturous crew approximately 50 miles southeast of the Bahamas and brought aboard due to safety of life at sea concerns’
